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
Two plies are twisted tightly together to produce a very soft and springy yarn. The two plies with a high twist make the yarn slightly bumpy which helps the strands of yarn hold together against each other making it great for colourwork and lace work.
Extrafine (19.5 micron) merino wool makes this yarn soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. While we don’t normally advocate or stock synthetic fibres, a little nylon is added for the extra durabilty and machine washability that is needed for hard wearing socks.
