Description

Limited edition pure mulberry silk chunky yarn

I only have a few kg of this yarn and as far as I know, my supplier is not going to make it again… So, I have dyed up 5 pairs of tonal colours.  I have a few left undyed as I thought I would wait and see which colours are most popular. The lovely Michelle from The Loveliest Yarn Company has given me her Two Chunky Hats pattern to include with them. I am also knitting up my Single Stripe Cowl so I will share pictures of that as soon as I’ve finished…

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.

    The yarn I ordered was even better than described, I am soooo happy with it.
    I am still deciding what to knit with it but whatever I knit I know it will be fab.
    I will definitely be ordering from here again when I need some extra special yarn!
