Introducing Cheviot, the newest yarn from Stone Wool. This yarn was inspired by traditional English handknitting yarns, yarns that are both sturdy and friendly. Cheviot fiber has a unique crimp that gives it resilience and loft. This means that garments knitted in Cheviot have bounce and body–and are hardwearing, too. It’s a great choice for sweaters, socks and other accessories that you want to last a lifetime. Or maybe longer.

Stone Wool Cheviot is woolen spun, which means that you’ll find it buoyant and airy. Worsted-spun yarns are combed before spinning, a process that aligns the fibers precisely and squeezes out air in order to create a smooth, uniform yarn. In woolen-spun yarns, however, the fibers are simply carded before spinning, a more relaxed process, a bit like using a hairbrush instead of a fine-tooth comb. The carding process leaves fibers plenty of pockets for air to hang out. And those miniscule pockets of air create loft and softness.

Most Cheviot fiber comes from the UK, but Stone Wool Cheviot is sourced from a flock grazing in Pennsylvania. To create exactly the yarn they had in mind, they worked with New Hampshire-based Harrisville Mill to process and spin this hearty woolen yarn. Cheviot has character and endurance, but pretty colors, too. Its pallete was inspired by a painter’s pallete, the colors named after natural pigments found in works of art throughout history.
