100% bluefaced leicester wool yarn, hand dyed in my Edmonton studio. Edmonton's hard water gives the colour just the slightest of variation throughout, adding dimension to whatever stitch pattern you choose. The wool has a gentle lustre, without much natural stretch.
The charcoal black and deep brown tones in this were inspired by a picture of a kettle on a gas stove, but once the yarn came out of the dyepot, all I could think of was the comforting smoke of a campfire or the wood stove that heated my childhood home.
Dyed using professional acid dyes, heat set, rinsed and ready to use. Dyes are colour-fast, light-fast and wash-fast.
Ball-winding is a complimentary service with all Ilex yarns, but must be requested at time of purchase. If you would like your yarn wound, please leave a note, and I'll be happy to wind a user-friendly ball.
