SKU: Yarn-Purple Heather, 2-ply fine Category: Tags: , , ,


Topsy Farms yarn is wonderful to work with. It is soft with natural lanolin, sturdy and alive to the hands, with fibres unbroken and almost silky.

Our 2-ply yarn is equivalent to worsted weight. Each skein weighs 4 oz – 1/4 lbs or 113 grams.  Since most knitting stores sell yarn in 50 gram balls, be aware that you only need half the number of skeins called for in a pattern.

Worsted weight, 2-ply yarn is approximately 200 yards or 180 m long.

Topsy Farms yarn is ideal for sweaters, mitts, toques or socks, or for creative wall hangings and other pure wool projects. It also felts beautifully.

No other fibre provides all the qualities of wool: it has enduring warmth even when wet; is breathable; and is machine washable with care. Wool deters dust mites, mould and mildew growth, and is a renewable resource.

All our wool products from Topsy Farms bring you these qualities and more – comfort, durability and natural richness to last a lifetime. Topsy Farms blankets, throws and yarn are processed from selected fleeces that have been washed in gentle soaps to preserve the wool’s natural softness. The traditional woollen mill that washes all our fleeces does not use sulphuric acid, bleach, or other harsh chemicals, which are regularly utilized in more modern mills. This is why our wool is not “prickly” – the fibres are smooth and are softened by the naturally occurring lanolin – not broken and barbed as in most commercial wool products.

Any product created from our yarn can be worn with pride, year ‘round.  All our yarn and any product created, is washable – if you follow our washing instructions.

This yarn features the Topsy Farms label – our sign that this is an authentic product and that it carries the Topsy Farms Guarantee of Excellence.

    I recently found Topsy Farms and wanted to try out their yearn. I chose the purple heather as one of my colours and knitted a great hat that’s warm and cozy. I loved finding the bits of chaff that made me remember my sheep raising days! This colour and the Topsy yarn turned out to be exactly what I wanted! It just makes me feel good in every way. Thanks Ian and Sally 🙂
