Product Details

  • A perfect blend of Corriedale and Perendale was combined to create the semi worsted Ashfords Tekapo 100% wool yarn making it very strong and soft.
  • All the wool is grown on sheep farms throughout New Zealand and it’s taken to Hawkes Bay to be spun inside a small boutique mill.
  • The bulky and lofty yarn is perfect for knitting, weaving, and knit/felt projects.
  • A small 100 gram ball of yarn yields an impressive 200 metres (218 yards). It’s knitted on 4.5 - 5 mm needles (US 7-8).
  • Proudly grown in New Zealand + spun by Ashfords. Click on all the photos and view the wide range of colours available.
  • Dry cleanable. Or, hand wash and dry flat.

    Ashfords Tekapo 8 Ply Wool Yarn

    Posted by Marg Pearce on 5th Jan 2018

    I am happy with the product.
    However I thought the website information about knitting wool was very poorly organised compared to other wool sales outlets.
    There should be a tab to click on for each ply e.g. 4 ply, 8 ply, 10 ply. Then the customer can choose a yarn in the ply required. I found the website very hard to follow, in fact, after I had finally found this yarn and wanted to go back and check on the colour, I struggled to find it again. I am computer literate and have been to other wool websites so I know the problem is with the website, not me. It is a shame as it is very nice wool. I think the problem is because The Tin Shed does not sell much wool and so is reluctant to set up tabs for various plys.
