All wool is a locally sourced from a small farm near Masterton - it's a Corriedale x Romney mix and is called "Roving wool" which has been part processed (washed, carded and prepared for spinning). This beautiful luxuriously soft wool comes in natural sheep colours, cream and different shades of brown.

All materials are included in the cost. Needles included for use on the day - can be purchased online if you wish to continue Giant Knitting at home!
