Strand Superfine Yarn is a great quality 3-ply yarn, grown and processed in New Zealand. This blend of corriedale wool (sheep) and angora fibre (goats) is suitable for durable projects with a great finish.

This was originally developed as a thread for embroidery, canvas work, needlepoint and the like.  However, this yarn is also very suitable for weaving, knitting, and crochet.

Strand Superfine Yarn is available in a  great range of colours. These 10 m skeins can be combined with the 25 g balls, if your project needs greater quantities of any particular colours.

50% NZ wool and 50% NZ angora.

Each skein is 10 m.

Ideal for embroidery, needlepoint etc.

Use ~2.5 mm needles (always check your gauge and change needle size if needed).

Approx 44 rows and 36 stitches to 10 x 10 cm.

We have photographed these in natural light to best capture the colours. They may appear differently on different monitors.

More about Strand Superfine Yarn:

“Strand is a unique yarn was developed at the Wool Research Institute that combined the softness of the mohair from Angora goats with the strength of fine Corriedale wool. The Corriedale wool enhances the lustre of the mohair in a way that other wools couldn’t. The yarn is a worsted spin (rather than a wooly spin) which gives a yarn that will wear extremely well, whether it is being taken through canvas numerous times while stitching or can be worn as a knitted garment for a long time with minimal pilling.

The yarn was initially developed as an embroidery thread used in needlepoint and crewel embroidery but its use spread to weaving and knitting.”
