Item details

Hand Dyed Yarn - Sock yarn- Norwegian wool - Marled yarn - Wool Yarn - Gifts for knitters - Indie dyed yarn - Crochet yarn - Knitting wool

80% Wool / 20% Polyester
100g = 350m/380 yards
10cm= 24-26 sts
Recommended needle size: 2,5mm - 3,5mm (1.5 - 4 US)
Yarn Base: Trollfjord sock
Colourway: Desert Oasis

Desert Oasis is a light teal blue dyed on a yarn base that is a twist of natural white and light grey yarns. This gives an amazing tonal look with a feeling of texture and movement to the colourway.

Combines well with the following skeins as pictured:
Night Storm

This colourway combines well with the natural undyed yarn in the 810 Mellomgrå/Kvit (Medium grey/White), 930 Kald Gråmelert (Heathered cold grey) and 960 mellomgrå (Medium grey) colourways and can also be incorporated as part of a fade.

Trollfjord sock base is durable enough for socks yet soft enough to use for shawls, hats, mittens and garments or even children´s clothing. It contains non-superwash wool but you can still machine wash on a wool program at 30 degrees with a detergent specifically for wool. However I always prefer to handwash my knitwear in general. Dry flat and do not tumble dry. I have used professional acid dyes and thoroughly washed and rinsed this yarn with a gentle wool wash detergent. I do however recommend washing items separately for the first couple of washes as very minimal colour bleeding may occur. This base is produced in the EU by Trollkar and contains Norwegian wool.

Please contact me if you need larger quantities for a specific project like a garment so that I can dye all skeins together to minimise colour differences between the skeins.

All skeins are hand-dyed and are repeatable colourways but due to the hand-dyeing process they will not always be identical. I recommend if using for a garment, that you alternate skeins every 2 rows to blend the colours to avoid obvious colour variations.

I try my best to photograph the skeins as accurately as possible using a Nikon camera and natural light but please note that colours may appear different due to variations in monitor/screen settings.

All items are produced in a Smoke-free / Pet-free environment .

Listings are for 1 x 100g skein only, even if pictured in a group.

Everything about this order is lovely--the wool (not superwash!!), the color, and the owner. Gilly is such a kind and lovely woman, and her hand dyed yarn is stunning. What a joy!
