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.

Description

Lustrous, smooth and soft, baby suri alpaca is wrapped around a silk core then brushed to produce a supersoft yarn with a light and airy halo. This yarn is wonderfully versatile and can be used in a wide range of projects. It knits up beautifully on its own on a wide range of needle sizes and can be used as a light DK through to chunky. Combine it with a fingering/sock weight or DK weight yarn to add warmth and texture without weight to jumpers, scarves and cowls.

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.
