Item details

Colourway: Mad Tea Party

Another in my series of 20 colourways inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. These skeins are mad! Besides using th same dyes for each batch, I don't try to control the colours in any way, making each as crazy as the next.

*As if this skein wasn't awsome enough, it also fluoresces under a UV Blacklight as shown in the last picture!*

All wool is hand dyed in single or small batches then washed and dried ready to be knit up into your own unique creation.

1 x 100g hank of Choufunga: Superwash Merino sock weight wool – 75% merino wool and 25% nylon for hand or machine knitting. Beautifully soft merino with nylon for a bit of extra stretch and strength.


Each 100g hank is about 465 yards / 425 meters.

Suitable for machine washing but hand washing is preferable. Dry flat.

While I have tried to capture the colours as best I can, please be aware colours may vary from those shown here.

Due to the nature of hand dyeing, colour saturation and placement may vary between different skeins of the same colourway. If you are using more than one to skein to complete your project I recommend alternating between the skeins for the best overall colour matching.

Ever had a wash load turn pink because of one tiny red sock? Although all wool has been washed after dyeing, it is advisable to wash your creations seperatly the first time in case any residual dye remains. The vibrance of your wool will not be affected in the rare event that there is any run off.
