This beautiful hand-dyed Thrift pink Corriedale Wool yarn is ideal for knitting into socks, hats, mittens or whatever may take your fancy.
The skein is a bright pink in a 4ply 100% non superwash yarn, which I dye by hand in small batches in the Peak District.
Corriedale is a versatile yarn, which is soft enough but keeps fantastic elements of what I describe as 'sheepy wool'. As all my yarns are dyed by hand, you will receive a unique one-of-a-kind (OOAK) skein.
Name: OOAK1 Thrift
Type: 100% Corriedale Wool
Ply: 4 Ply
Skein length: Approx 400m
As all my yarns are dyed by hand, there may be slight differences in colour between the skeins, even if they have been dyed in the same batch or the same dye pot. Therefore, as when knitting with any yarns, I would suggest alternating skeins to avoid any colour pooling.
I have tried to be as accurate in representing the colour as possible, but please note that all screens calibrate colour differently.
To make sure you get the best out of your yarn, store it out of direct sunlight and wash in a cold wash with a PH neutral wool wash. Garments can be laid flat to dry naturally. As I use British-sourced 100% Corriedale yarn that has no superwash treatment, you may find the colour bleeds when first washing. I have tried my best to prevent this to keep the integrity of the yarn in its best possible condition.
The inspiration for my yarns are based upon nature and the landscape.
I am at my happiest when I am outside, in open expanses and close to nature.
I take snapshots of memories, colours, feelings and thoughts when I am out in the open - either via my camera or in my journal. This then helps me bring to light to the colours I try to recreate when making my yarns.
Our packaging is plastic free with an option of either recycling it and the mailing bags can be placed on the compost too.
