Introducing our first TOFT Guest Yarn: Erika Knight's Wild Wool.

Erika's latest yarn is a sustainable blend of soft wool and natural nettle. Spun from the fibre found inside the stem of the plant, nettle has been used for 2000 years for its strength and durability as a textile. Nettle is grown abundantly and perennially in rainy areas worldwide without the need for harmful pollutants or pesticides, making it eco-friendly and sustainable. Blended with luxurious wool the nettle enhances the character of this yarn, adding insulation and texture, which contrary to its prickly persona, creates a sumptuously soft aran weight yarn in a palette of irresistible colours inspired by the wild.

This kit makes Holyport Street - a jacket knitted in rib, reverse stocking stitch and stocking stitch. The back features a single vertical line of a knit stitch running from hem to neck. The front hem is shaped to create side vents and a staggered rib stitch detail creates a revere collar. The button band is shaped at the hem, with the bottom button designed to be left open. The sleeves are worked in stocking stitch. Use the options below to pick your size and colour.
