Hand Dyed Merino / bamboo 4ply Yarn (New London 4ply) - "Orchard"


We are closed until January 2021 for Maternity Leave and won’t be processing orders during this time. In the meanwhile, you are welcome to browse the shop and we look forward to seeing you again in 2021.

100g superwash merino wool / bamboo sock-weight yarn.  Soft and lustrous, too gorgeous for just socks!  Would make lovely shawls and other garments too. Dyed in a random colourway, with several different methods used to apply the colour to the yarn (all acid dyes, steam-set), which makes it unrepeatable and unique.

Should resist felting, but best hand washed to ensure the colours have long life.
