Cloud (named so for obvious reasons) is made from 72% kid mohair and 28% silk, and works really well when held double with a 4ply - in fact I have several patterns/kits on here - see Trescao, Love Note and Scardigan, but it is also used in 100 Hundred Words For Rain and Follow The Moon. It is light and fluffy and at 420m/50g skein it goes a long way.
I dye all of these shades regularly, but if the colour you want is showing as out of stock, or you want a larger quantity you can order it here and I will dye it for you at no extra cost. There is a minimum of 2 skeins per colourway. Alternatively you can join the waitlist to receive an email when it’s back in stock.
A few things to bear in mind when using hand dyed yarn:
- No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. If consistency is important and/or to prevent colour pooling I strongly recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row, particularly on larger projects. If you only have one skein, then you can use both ends at once.
- Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure colour-fastness, there is a chance that some residual dye may remain (this is normal - think jeans...) I suggest hand washing all garments in cool water prior to being worn and keep bright colours separate. I also advise against soaking your finished item as the colours can bleed.
- It is not possible to work directly from a skein/hank. It must be wound into a ball before use, or will get into a terrible tangle. For more information on how to do this there are hundreds of videos on YouTube. Alternatively for a small fee I can do it for you here.
