Marriner Aran Yarn 100g
At 10-ply, a little heavier than Double Knits 8-ply, Aran has been reproduced for our range in 100% high-quality acrylic. This allows you to reproduce all of the beautiful details and cabling in an Aran yarn that is super soft, durable and hard wearing.
Aran wool jumpers first originated on a group of islands off the coast of Ireland and were known for their distinctive stitches and cabling detail. Today, Aran is still associated with off-white, cabled jumpers, but Aran wool has evolved as its own entity.
Aran knitting wool was traditionally spun using the un-dyed and unwashed sheep wool, giving it the traditional off-white colour, but our Aran yarn comes in a range of neutral colours that allows you to experiment with different combinations and begin your own traditions.
