This is a Fibresmith Hand Dyed core colourway, hand dyed in small batches in the Fibresmith warehouse. There may be variations in tone and shade between batches, and sometimes even within a batch, this is part of the process and unique beauty of hand dyeing. We recommend buying enough for your project from one batch and alternating rows from each skein when joining.
To order, please select a batch below. If we do not have enough in stock for your project, please select Custom and we will dye an extra special batch just for you! Please allow a few days for dyeing Custom batches before your order is ready to ship or pick up.
- Additional information
A plump and lustrous yarn with beautiful drape. Baby alpaca for softness, tussah silk for sheen and linen for texture to produce a rustic yet luxurious yarn. The linen softens after dyeing and takes up the dye differently to the alpaca and silk to produce a subtle marled effect. The pale honey colour of the tussah silk and the unbleached linen add a delicate natural biscuit colour to the yarn producing a wonderful depth of colour when overdyed.
The addition of linen gives this yarn great memory so it is ideal for lacework. Use for unstructured garments, throws, shawls and other lightweight accessories.
Fibresmith Hand Dyed combines a range of repeatable, core colours that work beautifully together and are available ongoing and on all yarn bases as well as one-off colour ways, the result of testing and playing with the dyes.
