This is a pre-order for a skein of sock yarn dyed on the base of your choice. As you can see it contains a mix of colours and is inspired by the deep earthy colours within the forest. The last four photos show an example of how this colourway knits up (the shawl is not for sale, only the skein of yarn) and you can find more information in my Instagram account. As this is a made to order listing, please be aware that I have a turnaround time of 1-3 weeks and so this item will not be dispatched immediately, although I will try to dispatch it as quickly as I can.
This skein contains superwash wool which means it can be machine washed on a wool wash cycle but I recommend hand washing and drying flat to prevent felting and help extend the life of your finished product.
Although I have washed and rinsed this wool after dyeing to remove any excess dye, some may remain especially with darker colours and so hand washing separately will also help avoid colour transfer to another item.
While I have tried to depict the yarn colours as accurately as possible, please be aware that colours can vary between monitors, and that as each skein is hand dyed, even skeins from the same dye lot may vary a little.
Recommended Needle Size: 2.5 - 4mm needles Gauge (stocking stitch): 28sts x 36 rows over 10cm/4 inches on 3.25mm (US 3) needles
