This is a skein of sock yarn which I have hand dyed using professional dyes and reskeined. It is a combination of red and orange which reminds me of mulled wine, and is dyed on a base with gold stellina which gives it a lovely festive sparkle, perfect for brightening a dull day!
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.
