Designed and developed exclusively for Kate Davies Designs, Buachaille is a 100% wool yarn with bags of Scottish character. Buachaille is a 2-ply, worsted spun yarn, with a light, smooth hand, good stitch definition, and an attractive “halo”. It is a robust and highly versatile “woolly-wool”, and can be knit at tighter or looser gauges to suit a wide range of projects, from socks to shawls.
Buachaille is available in 11 shades, 7 dyed and 3 natural fleece colours: Between Weathers (mid blue), Haar (natural silver grey), Highland Coo (rust), Islay (teal), Ptarmigan (natural white), Squall (natural dark grey), Yaffle (spring green), Macallum (raspberry red), Furze (gorse gold), Hedder (soft heather pink) and Moonlicht Nicht (inky blue)
Buachaille was raised by Scottish sheep, and all processing was carried out in West Yorkshire, the historic heart of the British wool industry.
Buachaille is the Scottish Gaelic term for herdsman or shepherd, and is also associated with two beautiful mountains close to Kate’s home in the Scottish highlands (Buachaille Etive Mor and Buachaille Etive Beag).
