Item details

John Hammond is a beautiful and complicated green, like the leaves on the turn in early autumn it has tones of yellow and green throughout.
It is on a 100% British Bluefaced Leicester Superwash base which creates the most beautiful, soft and yet hard wearing projects.
Perfect for a light sweater, socks, shawl or accessory.

The 4ply/fingering weight knits to a standard gauge.

I hand dye each skein in very small batches so each one is unique, i always recommend alternating skeins if you are using more than one.

Please note that the actual colour may be slightly different to that shown as all monitors and screens show colours differently.

Please contact me if there are not enough skeins listed for a project you have in mind!

Thanks!


FAQs

Base number 1. is a superwash yarn, and is therefore treated so that it can be machine washed on a cold, delicate cycle. That said, I would always recommend hand-washing your projects. You have taken a lot of time and put a lot of effort into creating these and soaking them in a no rinse wool wash and then allowing them to dry flat should avoid any damage that could be caused by using a washing machine.

Each skein is unique, but so too is every screen. I photograph my yarn in natural light and do not apply filters to the colourway pictures. However, I use a smartphone to take my photographs and the colour is not always 100% accurate to the skein itself. Also, each computer, tablet and phone will have different settings, be aware that this may also affect how the colours appear. If you are cautious of purchasing yarn without seeing it in person please contact me via my website and i may be able to send you a small sample if required.

I use commercial grade acid dyes to create my colourways, this uses citric acid to set the colour which is a naturally occurring acid. I then rinse the yarn in Soak unscented no rinse wool wash. I live in a house with 2 very friendly cats, the yarn is dyed, packed and stored in a room which the cats do not have access to. However, they do occasionally pop up in photos featuring the yarn and their hair does travel much further than the rooms they have access to. If you have a cat or fur allergy please be aware of this before buying any yarn.

Because each hand dyed skein is unique alternating skeins through a project which requires more than one will create a more even colour. There are some fantastic posts online about alternating skeins.

I dye my yarns, let the dyebath completely exhaust until the water is cool and then rinse the skeins before they are sold. However, some of the colours I dye are very intense and require a large amount of dye there therefore may be some bleeding of colours. If you are worried about colours bleeding if you are knitting a striped project or doing colourwork I would always recommend checking first with a gauge swatch which you block to check the colourfastness. Like most hand dyers I do recommend pre-washing intense colourways if you are able or are concerned about the colour bleeding.

If there are other queries or questions please contact me here or from my website, thank you!
