(4 customer reviews)

£20.00

A mulberry silk and superwash merino blended DK yarn in a wide variety of shades. 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 very different.  If you want a larger quantity please let me know.

Description

A 50:50 mulberry silk and superwash merino blended DK (double knitting) yarn this has the glimmer and drape of silk, with the softness of merino yarn. It literally shines.  I love this blend so much that I also have it in Lace and 4ply.

I dye all of these colours 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.
