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.

A stunning, rustic blend with baby alpaca for softness and tussah silk and raw linen for great structure. Perfect for shawls or outer garments such as cardigans.

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.
