Kelbourne Woolens Scout Yarn

: 040 Pewter Heather
Add to Wishlist

A DK weight, 2 ply heathered wool designed with classic knitting and crochet in mind, Scout is yarn for the sake of yarn. Perfect for garments, Scout is put up in a generous 100 gram, 274 yard hank. It is unfussy, beautiful, high-quality, and comes in a gorgeous color palette.

As with the Highland wool in Andorra, the wool in Scout is a cross between Corriedale and Merino. It is not as soft as Merino, but it is stronger and adds durability to the yarn. Scout is also unique in that it is a heather, meaning multiple colors are pre-blended prior to spinning to create a shade with a lot of depth and variation. Natural is the one exception to this – it is the undyed white shade of wool.

About Kelbourne Woolens

Kelbourne Woolens was founded in 2008 by Courtney Kelley and Kate Gagnon Osborn. After running a sole distributorship for almost a decade, in 2017 we poured our years of experience into our own line of yarns under the Kelbourne Woolens brand. Our primary focus is creating yarn with accessibility, quality, and functionality. The yarns are meant to be worked with, worn, and enjoyed by all, with as few barriers to entry as possible.

Kelbourne Woolens is for those who love the craft as much as we do.

We strive to design yarns that fill a gap – not only within the Kelbourne Woolens line itself, but in the industry overall. Working directly with mills throughout the world, we are able to work closely with manufacturers who share the same core beliefs of high-quality production paired with environmental and social practices that respect and value the planet. Over the years we have stayed closely connected with all aspects of running the business. From invoicing, customer service, pattern writing, sample knitting, social media, graphic design, color development, and website management, we still do it all! We are forever grateful to our customers who have supported us along the way. Whether you were a friend from Rosie’s Yarn Cellar in Philadelphia back in the day, or are a brand new shop owner, thank you!
