Item details

'Playing With The Paintbox'. A beautifully soft variegated rainbow Aran weight yarn. Pure white wool with splashes of vibrant blue, green, yellow, orange, pink and purple. 100% wool. 50g, 79m (approx).

This wool has been RECLAIMED = Saved from a discarded garment, unwound, washed, dyed and re-skeined.

I only do this with yarns that I am sure are top quality, pure content wool. Recycling discarded garments is a very environmentally friendly source of yarn, and is something I am keen on doing.

This yarn has been checked for knots and breakages and there should be no more than you would expect in a skein of yarn straight out of a mill. You may notice that the yarn looks slightly 'kinked' in parts when you unwind it. This is because it has previously been knitted up, but should make no difference to the look of your completed project.

I have other colours listed in the same yarn base:

Hand dyed with kenanthrol acid milling dye for colourfastness.

Gauge 18 sts & 24 rows per 10cm x 10 cm on 5mm needles.
