100% pure New Zealand Corriedale, the wool for this yarn is grown on sheep farms around New Zealand and yarn spun in a small boutique mill in Hawkes Bay. This fingering weight yarn is a blend of Corriedale and Perendale especially designed for softness and strength. It is fine, with a beautiful drape and stitch definition, ideal for knitting, weaving and knit/felt garments, accessories and projects. This yarn looks especially lovely knit up in lace shawls.

The yarn is named after the beautiful Lake Tekapo, just 90 minutes south west of Ashburton. The lake, ringed by snowcapped Southern Alps and glaciers is famous for its bright turquoise colour caused by its suspended glacial dust. In 1857 one of the first sheep stations in the New Zealand was established on its shore.
