A mulberry silk and superwash merino blended DK yarn in a variety of shades. Perfect for shawls, jumpers and socks. These are dyed in small batches so if you see something you like my advice is buy it! If you want a larger quantity you can order here
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.
A few things to bear in mind when using hand dyed yarn:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
