Item details

Hand dyed, 80% Australian merino wool, 20% nylon yarn. Base yarn is Merino Pearl Sock - a plush, soft, sock yarn with a visible twist.

The Lilly Pilly is a variety of very popular Australian native plants. They range in size from small shrubs to towering trees and are produce a very generous crop of strangely astringent, crisp, berry sized fruit.

The fruit can range from white to red, but they are more commonly seen in shades of pink and purple. An afternoon of picking lilly pilly berries for the jam pot usually results in fingers stained in shades of pink and purple too.

Lilly Pilly yarn has been dyed with three different shades to create this unique blend of colours. Skeins are dyed to avoid strong pooling patterns when knitted up.

Merino Pearl is a lovely soft sock yarn that wears well. The generous length, elegant twist and plump texture make it great for shawls, scarves and baby wear as well as socks.

CARE - Hand wash in woolwash and dry flat

Although all my yarn is carefully rinsed after dyeing, some colour may appear in the washing water of your first few washes. Although this will not fade the colour of your yarn, it tints the water, and could colour other items in the same wash.

Hand washing in luke warm water and an approved wool wash will avoid cross staining and help your knitwear look beautiful for longer.

Dry flat in the shade, away from direct heat.

BATCHES AND DYE LOTS - As a result of the hand-dyeing process, each skein will be slightly different even if they were dyed in the same batch. If you order more than one skein, all the skeins you receive will be from the same batch.

When knitting with multiple skeins, alternating skeins between rows will even out any variation.
