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 skeins, this is part of the process and unique beauty of hand dyeing. We recommend buying enough for your project when ordering and alternating rows from each skein when joining.

There may be a 2-3 day delay in shipping your order while we dye your yarn, please get in touch if you need your yarn quickly and we can let you know what colours we have ready to ship.

Description

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.
