I created a similar set for a customer as a bespoke order and while creating it I dyed a couple of extras. Therefore, rather than list these as separates I have bundled them into a set which comprises 5 x 100g skeins of Mulberino 4ply, for the price of 4. Mulberino 4ply is a 50:50 Superwash merino silk sock yarn with the glimmer and drape of silk, and the softness of merino yarn. It literally shines. These colourways were originally from the Mulberino DK collection and they would work perfectly to create a stunning shawl. I have called the set World Party because the original colourways are all songs by one of my favourite bands:
Take it Up
What Is Love About
Thank You World
It’s All Right
A few things to bear in mind about hand dyed yarn:
- No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. If consistency is important I strongly recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row, particularly on larger projects.
- 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.
- 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.
