Laxtons Wooltrace DK 100g
Wooltrace is the second yarn from Laxtons own brand, launched in summer 2023. This yarn has been created in collaboration with The Woolkeepers, an initiative that works in co-operation with sheep farmers and manufacturers in the UK to ensure a fully traceable supply chain.
Wooltrace is therefore a fully traceable yarn made from 100% British wool; a yarn that supports fair pay for farmers and kind treatment of animals, while making a positive environmental and social change.
But here's what makes Wooltrace truly unique: on every skein of yarn, you'll find a QR code and a batch number. By scanning this QR code or entering the number on a website, you'll find full details of all the farms that supplied wool to the batch used to spin your skein: the names and locations of the farms and breeders, the breeds of sheep and the farming methods used.
Wooltrace is a high quality worsted spun wool. It is a strong, medium-soft yarn with excellent stitch definition, suitable for all types of garments. It is available in a fashionable palette of 16 retro colours.
