It has been our pleasure to work with Kate on this project, and we hope you will love the yarn as much as we do! So without further ado, we are super excited to announce Àrd-Thìr, a beautiful Aran weight (heavy worsted) yarn developed in collaboration with Kate Davies!

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: from the deepening russet tones of bracken-covered hillsides to the luminous hues of lichen hanging from bare branches; from the glancing orange glow of sunlight across high rocky peaks to the extraordinarily rich colour of a sealoch under a leaden February sky. 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 Alpaca, perfect for texture, cables and colourwork.

Although Àrd-Thìr is sold as an Aran weight, it can be knitted across quite a broad range of gauges.
