Beautiful, densely spun singles, with a slight kink that blocks beautifully even. Takes the dye like nothing else and is wonderful for projects that will be worn next to the skin. Sweaters knit from this will be lovely and soft, but aim to knit at a slightly tighter gauge than you would a plied yarn.
Although I recommend hand-washing to prolong the life of your knits, this yarn may be machine washed on a gentle wool cycle, then laid flat to dry.
As with other hand dyed yarns, I would recommend alternating skeins every two rows or so.
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 please get in touch!
