Strand is a unique yarn, developed at the New Zealand Wool Research Institute, that combines the softness of the mohair from Angora goats with the strength of fine Corriedale wool. The Corriedale wool enhances the lustre of the mohair in a way that other wools couldn't. The yarn is a worsted spin (rather than a wooly spin) which gives a yarn that will wear extremely well, whether it is being taken through canvas numerous times while stitching or can be worn as a knitted garment for a long time with minimal pilling.

The yarn was initially developed as an embroidery thread used in needlepoint and crewel embroidery but its use spread to weaving and knitting. It is also used for Persian rug restoration.

The exclusive colour range for Strand Natural Fibres has been developed to reflect New Zealand's unique light and landscape colours. Three pages of themes; 60 per page.
