Jorstad Yarns

Aran/Worsted Weight 100% Merino
181 yards per skein
US Needle 8 – 10

Arranmore was one of the first yarns we started dyeing as a Jorstad Creek yarn. It is a 3 ply traditional Aran weight superwash merino with a soft feel. Shows texture and cables amazingly well. Great for accessories or sweaters and it is soft enough for next to skin and babies. Dyes beautifully with light and dark complexity.

We import this base from our supplier in the UK, and dye it in an expanding range of colors. Arranmore is exceptional for kettle dyeing because it takes the dye in light and dark layers. This means when you knit this yarn it will lend this complexity to your knitting. So if you choose simple stockinette or garter pieces to knit in this yarn it will lend sophistication to your knitting by the way it reflects color and shade.

The BK Collective has designed several patterns in this yarn for you to try. You can purchase these patterns from or, search for the pattern by name. Purchase this lovely yarn at our shopping site.
