Love this


This is a 100% Bluefaced Leicester Super wash 4 ply no nylon high twist sock yarn, naturally hand dyed in the Yorkshire Dales , the yarn is locally spun just down the valley from me and is a Worstead spun yarn .
This yarn is a hand painted with natural dyes then Eco printed with plant elements when steamed to set the colours. This technique has produced a beautiful variegated yarn with a myriad of greens, lilac and purples, grey and pink tones , golden yellow and mustard, burnt orange, brown, caramel, beige and cream.
I only use natural dyes to dye yarn with, in both plant form and extract as well as minerals and insect ( e.g. Cochineal and Lac which are both scale insects which have been used traditionally for hundreds of years ) . I usually use Alum & Cream of Tartar to modify my yarn .
Weight : 110g
Approx 385 mts/ 421yds, 4ply, Needles size: 2.5 mm to 3.5 mm
Dye Used : Logwood, Sorghurm , Chlorophyllin, logwood, madder, onion skins , tea and an Iron modifier .

To care for your yarn I would suggest that you always gently hand wash it in cool water with a gentle wool soap ( Inlike to use a no rinse wool wash )
