Marina Skua Mendip 4ply

Marina Skua's Mendip 4ply is a woollen-spun Sport weight yarn that’s a true gauge wonder. It comes from a single flock of Shetland-cross sheep that grazes in the Mendip Hills, less than 20 miles from Marina's studio.

The Mendip Stormy base we used to carry has been replaced by Mendip Cloudy. They are spun to the same specifications, but where Stormy was a warm beige base spun from grown-up sheep’s wool, Cloudy is a natural heathery grey spun from blended white and dark-coloured lambswool. This means the new Cloudy base is a little softer, and the overdyed colours come out very slightly cooler than on the Stormy base. We've also added an undyed version of Marina's Sunny base, which is a creamy white with just a hint of grey!
