The latest addition to our catalogue - a DK version of Mulberino 4ply. This yarn is the same blend as Mulberino Yak 4ply, and provides the same rich depth of colour. I have used this yarn on a couple of shawls and jumpers and it is deliciously soft and warm, and the silk gives it an added drape that lends itself beautifully to larger garments. I have created 10 tonal colours - the Cat Stevens Collection. I chose these names because the colours are so deep, rich and tonal.

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.
