Life in the Long Grass was born from the joy of creating and living in rural Ireland.
Once we restored our one-hundred-year-old derelict farmhouse, we set up our dye studio in our field so we could live by the values that are important to us: Ethical yarns, local employment, slow living, care, and quality – when all this came together, LITLG was born.
100% Super wash Merino sport weight yarn. Sturdy and textural stitches. 328 yards. Needle size 3.26mm - 4.5mm
Dyed using professional wash fast and light fast dyes which have minimum impact on the environment each dye pot is used so all the color is absorbed onto the yarn and the water is clear and safe to use again for the next batch. This is achieved by meticulous calculations and recipes that have been created to be as exact efficient and environmentally friendly as possible.
The labels are made from 100% recycled paper and the wool is sourced from small farms in South America and British breeds.
