Item details

100grams of hand-dyed soft and silky merino tencel blend sock-weight knitting wool in the soft Sweet Chestnut colourway, here at Perranporth, Cornwall, England. Inspired by chilly walks through autumn leaves.

A lovely yarn for all seasons, with the warmth of merino and the sheen and drape of tencel. Last picture shows a pretty scarf knitted using one skein (100grams) of this yarn in the Chilli Roast colourway.

Tencel yarn is made from wood pulp, and so is fully biodegradable. It is absorbent and breathable like other natural fibres and can be used similarly to silk, bamboo or mercerized cotton. It is a strong yarn with a wonderful sheen and drape like silk.
Merino is the softest wool yarn available. Merino is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin. Merino sheep need to be shorn at least once a year because their wool does not stop growing.
Enjoy both of these wonderful fibers in this gorgeous hand-dyed Perran Yarn!

FAQs

I am delighted to take on any requests for custom or wholesale orders - just ask! Custom dye orders are priced the same as in-stock colourways. They generally take around 2-3 weeks before they are ready for shipping, as long as I have the required base yarn in stock. I offer discount for larger quantities of yarn purchased at the same time. Please ask for your specific requirements and I'll let you know the timescale and cost.

All animal-based fibres (wool, silk, alpaca, cashmere, etc) are dyed with heat using Jacquard dyes and are as colourfast as you can get a hand-dyed yarn, although if regularly exposed to harsh sunlight they will fade the same as any other coloured fabric. Gentle handwashing and drying (not tumble dryers) is a must as these are premium yarns which you'll want to last! The plant-based fibres (bamboo, banana, linen, cotton, tencel) are cold-dyed with Procion MX dyes which always releases some of the colour over time, like denim jeans that fade. Handwash these yarns separately in cool water and drip-dry for best results.

I use recycled packaging where possible - if you prefer new (e.g. when the item is for a gift), just let me know when you order. An additional giftwrap option is available for selection at checkout on suitable items.

    OMG this yarn is divine 😍. Beautiful colour with a lovely sheen; will drape beautifully. Just have to find a pattern to do it justice now.
