Mulberino High Twist (HT) is a sport weight yarn, which is slightly thicker than 4ply, at 366m/100g but it’s pretty interchangeable, just remember that you will need slightly more of it. It is 80% Superwash Merino and 20% Silk, and its high twist gives a great stitch definition. I have dyed up 4 colourways which are similar and will work beautifully together or on their own.
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.
