Item details

Handpainted laceweight knitting yarn in salmon pink and grey and toning skeins of kettle dyed salmon pink. Available in multiples of 100gm twisted skeins of 100% Superwash Merino or a luxurious blend of 80% Baby Alpaca, 20% Mulberry Silk lace weight knitting yarn. Hand dyed in my home studio using a hand painting technique to create a truly unique colourway.

Choose handpainted 'Salmon Sky' colourway or toning kettle dyed 'Salmon' with a very subtle variegation. Or a skein of each to create a truly unique item.

This colourway is available in laceweight on three luxurious all natural fibre bases:

'Baby silk' lace is affordable luxury at it's best with 80% baby alpaca and 20% silk.

'Superwash merino' is soft and practical, a soft pure 100% merino lace yarn finely twisted into 2 plys to give stitch definition. Not remotely itchy like some pure wool yarns and machine washable.

'Fine Lace' 21 micron wool is a single ply lace weight yarn made from soft wool to feel great next to the skin in scarves or shawls. The single ply adds to the 'artisan' effect when dyed and knitted up.

Colour: Hand Painted 'Salmon Sky' or kettle dyed 'Salmon'
