Description

Erba DK is a hand dyed semi-solid eco yarn made from 70% merino and 30% hemp. Hemp fibre has been used extensively throughout history, and is widely considered to be environmentally friendly due to it’s low impact production. Also, because it’s a plant fibre it does not react to protein dyes and as such creates an interesting tweed effect.

Eco by name, economical by nature this yarn comes in 8 vibrant colours. I dye them in fairly small batches and while I will endeavour to keep the photos up to date, the item received may differ slightly from the image shown. When you select the colour it will tell you if all the skeins available are from the same batch. If you need larger quantities please let me know and I will dye it especially for you.

Due to the process of hand-dyeing yarn, some residual dye may remain. This is perfectly normal and mostly effects blues and red dyes due to their manufacturing process. We do however suggest washing all garments before they are worn to prevent colour transference. In the case of particularly bright colours, soaking the finished item in a salt and vinegar solution will help fix colours prior to washing. For more information you can see our blog post.
