Buachaille: at Home in the Highlands

Kate Davies recently decided to develop her own hand-knitting yarn from the resources on her doorstep. Her idea was to create a 100% Scottish yarn, grown by Scottish sheep: a yarn full of character that reflected the distinctive qualities of the landscape in which she lives and works. The finest fleeces were selected, graded, and processed in traditional worsted fashion to create a soft, smooth yarn ideal for hand knitting. Kate gave her yarn the name of one of her favourite West Highland mountains and created a rich palette of seven Scottish shades. The end result is Buachaille— a yarn as as hardy and beautiful as the landscape in which it was raised.

This book was made in celebration of Buachaille, and all the things that make Kate feel at home in the Scottish Highlands.
