Slouchy and extremely comfortable oversized cardigan/wrap/shrug. Yarn options vary. I am working on putting kits together for this in the next few days.

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 have recently re-dyed this yarn in a handful of semi-solids and speckled options and used it to create Wrapdigan, held double with Cloud Lace. If you'd like a particular colour just get in touch.

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.
