Kate Davies Ard thir
Àrd Thìr’s worsted spinning and carefully blended fibres lend it a wonderfully soft and squishy hand. It’s a round, smooth and highly versatile yarn that knits up into a wonderfully warm and even fabric. Àrd Thìr has been produced in one highland landscape (Peru) and inspired by another (Scotland).
The Scottish winter landscape is often thought to be drained of colour, but if you look carefully, you’ll discover a mix of many interesting shades. Each of Kate’s ten shades is a subtle, muted marl; each possesses its own depth and tonal variety; some can be combined into intriguing gradients, and all work together harmoniously as a range.
Àrd-Thìr is a blend of Peruvian Highland Wool and Superfine Alpaca, perfect for texture, cables and colourwork. Although it is sold as an Aran weight, it can be knitted across quite a broad range of gauges.
