Iona Wool is a high-quality yarn spun exclusively from fleeces gathered on the beautiful Isle of Iona, each carefully selected from the variety of breeds found on the crofts and farms throughout the island. The sheep on Iona enjoy the full spectrum of weather as they graze the island. Their cosy fleeces are conditioned by fresh winds, clean waters, and the magical sunlight for which Iona is renowned. Each year in June they are sheared to enjoy the warmth of the Hebridean sun, and the work begins. Over several days they sort through them by hand, one fleece at a time. Only the finest fibres are kept and go on to become Iona Wool. Each batch is assigned a number: IW1, IW2, IW3, IW4 etc. This number refers to the batch of wool and the dye lot.

The current dyelot is IW6. There is only one run per year and there is no guarantee that they will look the same year on year so if you need them all the same dyelot, grab them while you can! Please note that while we strive for accuracy, the colours in the photos, may not necessarily line up with their appearance in real life. Check in-store or on our Instagram for more recent photos.
