Each skein is 100g/400m approx of 50% merino wool, 50% silk. It is very soft and smooth and can be used for just about any 4ply pattern and would make some incredibly luxurious socks. Handwash separately in cool water.
The colourway was inspired by the scene in my garden as I dyed other yarn - the pond reflecting the blue of the sky and the masses of wild forget-me-nots, with it's hundreds of tadpoles (toadpoles actually, we never saw them again after their legs sprouted, wonder what happened to them?), the many greens of the grass, forget-me-not leaves, trees, pondweed.... The dye effect is gradient, with the pond and tadpoles in the middle fading out to the paler colours and green speckles. The process means there is a slight kind left in the yarn but this will disappear as you use it.
This yarn comes ready-caked, no need to wind it into a ball before you use it. You can use it from the centre or from the outside.
Please note colours are only as accurate as camera/screen/printing allow but we try our best. Due to the nature of the dyeing process, each skein will be different, even from the same dye batch.
