Sutton - Bulky

3 items left

Sutton is the replacement for our discontinued Largo yarn, and like Winfield it’s a 100% Canadian yarn. Sutton is a sturdy 3-ply with a rustic feel, perfect for quick-to-knit slippers and mittens or a warm jacket. We’ve kept a few of our favourite Largo colourways and added some exciting new ones too!
