Threads Throughout the United Kingdom

What fun I had finding yarn in the United Kingdom.

I found most of it on my time on the Island of Iona. Two of the skeins I found in a little shop down in the village, one from England and one from Wales.

The third yarn I got was raised right there on Iona. I even got to meet the sheep and the woman who raises the sheep and sells the yarn. It was spun at a manufacture across the isle, but besides that short trip, born, harvested and sold on the island of Iona.

I told her about how I was gathering yarn along my way. Later that evening she came back with some red and blue yarn from a project she’d been working on.

Red and blue for the UK colors of course.  I was touched and wove it right in.
