Scout Colors: 005 black

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.

Loving Scout!

I’ve made two garments with Scout in the past two months and I really enjoyed working with it. I’m a fan - love the color choices and the product. I have one more garment in the works and will definitely purchase this yarn again.

Great wool

I bought this wool at a local yarn store and it’s my first experience working with something other than acrylic blend. It’s expensive, but so soft, squishy, easy to work with, and easily worth the price. I would recommend this to anyone!

Lovely Yarn!

I recently received my order of Scout (Dandelion colorway), and I am delighted with it! I have a specific project in mind: the Riptide Slipover, which I know that Scout will be perfect for. Although I haven't started knitting with it yet, I can tell that Scout will work well. It has a good hand, and is soft yet sturdy. And I love the colorway! I look forward to knitting with Scout.

In Love with Scout

I’m finishing a sweater out of a previous Scout purchase and had to buy more for another sweater. It knits up beautifully and the colors are amazing. I’m hooked!

This wool is bouncy and soft. I am using it for a shawl but I want to make everything with this. The picture shows Scout in the natural color. So squishy!

Made by knitters, for knitters

Kate and Courtney met while working in a local yarn store in Philadelphia, PA; Courtney was a new mom and Kate was in her final year of grad school. Together they founded Kelbourne Woolens at Kate's kitchen table, and have been working side by side ever since.
