Milburn & Original Milburn 4ply | Eden Cottage


Original Milburn 4ply is a more tweedy, bouncy version Eden Cottage’s ‘new’ Milburn 4ply which has more drape.
This beautiful British Superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool is blended with 15% silk to create a 4ply yarn ideal for a wide range of projects. The silk gives it a slightly tweedy look (both versions), and the colours, carefully designed here at ECY are aimed to work together as well as on their own.
