A mass of colour, splashes and speckles inspired by a character from my favourite childhood book 'The Enormous Crocodile' by Roald Dahl and illustrated so perfectly by Quentin Blake. This is my homage to the 'Roly-Poly' bird, a complete riot of colours.
Beautifully soft and squishy, this DK yarn is perfect for clothing, hats, bags and home textiles.
As with all hand dyed yarns, each skein will be slightly different, it's what makes hand dyed yarns so lovely. If you purchase more than one skein of this colour at the same time, they will be from the same dye lot. If you would like to order more skeins of this colour than are available in the shop, please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss your requirements.
Although this yarn is superwash, hand washing in cool / warm water with a suitable wool detergent is recommended.
All yarns are dyed using professional acid dyes, heat set and then washed. Should any colour be released if washed as recommended, it will only be a small amount of residual dye being released and will not change the colour of the yarn itself.
*I don't recommend using Roly-Poly with any pale colour yarns if you are going to be washing the item as it may bleed a little due to the amount of colour in the yarn. Just like you wouldn't put a red shirt in a white wash, make sure to wash any Roly-Poly items separately!
This is easily the most beautiful yarn I've ever worked with. The colours are vibrant and work perfectly together. I knitted a pair of bulky socks for my son and it was an absolute joy to work with. Thank you so much Alice!
