Description

A 50:50 Superwash merino silk sock yarn with the glimmer and drape of silk, and the softness of merino yarn. It literally shines.  I love this blend so much that I also have it in Lace and DK. Perfect for shawls, jumpers and socks. These are all dyed in 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./

Thinking up names for all of my colourways never seemed to do them justice. As I love music almost as much as colour it seemed that a good and never-ending source of inspiration would be to name them after some of my favourite tracks…

I dye all of these colours fairly 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:

  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.

    Daydream Believer arrived today with a pale grey to match which Abby had kindly dyed for me. Delicious yarn – extraordinarily beautiful colours . It’s like knitting liquid chocolate with sherbert sprinkles! Thanks Abby.

    You cannot fault the luxurious feel of this yarn. I imagine it will be amazing to knit with. The only thing I would say is that it doesn’t look the same as the photo on the website. There is no purple or blue at all. There was just the pink, yellow and green so slightly disappointed. I must say also that it arrived beautifully packaged.

      Hi Wendy,
      Thanks for leaving a review! I’m so sorry that the colours weren’t the same as in the photo. This is by far my most popular colourway and as such I have done hundreds, however each one is always slightly different. If you would like to swap them for another couple of skeins please let me know and I will make sure my next batch has more purple/blue.

    Lovely yarn, just what I was expecting. Making my garment with it now so unsure of how it will wash, last etc. But I expect it will be just fine.

    The yarn that came looked nothing like it did on the screen and I wasn’t very happy with the match but it still very soft and I’, sure someone would like it

      Dear June,
      I am so sorry that you didn’t like the yarn? I am really surprised by your comment as I had actually sent you a photograph of the exact skein that I was sending you, next to the colourway that you had already purchased so that you could see them next to each other… It’s not the same as the one on the website but that’s why I sent you the photograph via email.
      I am not sure what else I could have done, but of course if you are not happy with it please by all means return it and I will happily offer you a refund.
      Best wishes
      Abby
