Mulberino 4ply Tonals

(13 customer reviews)

£20.00

A Mulberry Silk Superwash Merino blended delicate 4ply yarn in a variety of semi-solid colours. Perfect for shawls, jumpers and socks. These are usually dyed in fairly small batches so don’t hang around – if you see something you like my advice is buy it! The next batch may be slightly different.  If you want a larger quantity please let me know. I also have a selection of variegated colours in this yarn that work perfectly with these colours.

A 50:50 Mulberry Silk: Superwash Merino blended 4ply yarn this has the glimmer and drape of silk, with the softness of merino yarn. It literally shines. These semi-solid colours work beautifully with the speckled versions of this yarn as well as working well on a number of kits.

Most of these colours are named after songs by Paul Simon and/or Art Garfunkel - which seemed fitting. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
