400m (440yds) per 100g - fingering weight
Perfect for everyday items like sweaters, shawls, hats, baby items - anything! This is a plied yarn which has lots of bounce, it takes dye beautifully and knits up like a dream.
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!
