Like a distinguished gentleman that has just donned his best clothes, Posh DK is a blend of British Blue Faced Leicester, Silk and Cashmere. It has a lovely sheen and a soft handle.
As with other hand dyed yarns, I would recommend alternating skeins every 2 rows or so.
Although this yarn is machine washable I’d recommend hand washing to prolong the life of your hand knitted items.
I care deeply about the environment and am aware of the effects that chemicals can have on it, so I make every effort to exhaust all dyes in the dyebath so that no nasties go down the plughole. It is not always possible to exhaust *all* the dye, all the time, especially with certain dyeing techniques, so if you are intending on using your yarn for colourwork or with paler colours it pays to give it a wash first, just to be sure.
I try to ensure all colours look true on my monitor, but let’s face it, we know they vary, so if you’re unsure about a particular colourway just get in touch!
