Heather is such an important wild shrub for our wildlife in the UK, so this summer we are bringing you a limited edition version of this beautiful flower TOFT style, designed by best-selling author and designer Kerry Lord.
Nectar from heather flowers makes excellent honey! In Yorkshire, beekeepers often take their hives on to the Yorkshire moors during late-summer when the heather comes into bloom to keep the bees busy. 'Heather' is a limited edition TOFT yarn released for Summer 2021 to complement our Save the Bees Summer Competition. It is a pure British wool made from a blend of the fleeces of 50% Wensleydale, 20%, Blue Faced Leicester and 30% Alpaca and spun to be lighter weight than a standard Toft DK to create a yarn perfect for working light petal adornments onto the design.
Carleton is a perfect crochet project to go with Nancy and Drew the honey bees, and with no watering required, this heather is the perfect addition to your crochet garden - he’ll always be in bloom!
THIS KIT CONTAINS: 75g of TOFT's luxury British DK wool in the colours of your choice and 50g of our limited edition Heather.
