Thank you so much for visiting my shop - please visit my Instagram page west_green_loft_yarns for more details - I am launching a new website soon and I will post all the details of my new website and also my next shop update on their - thanks Vykky
Vintage peoney a beautiful blend of deep pink/browns/and dusky pink with speckles - one of my favourite flowers and this has been given a vintage twist with a base colour of blush - gorgeous
Meterage per 100gram skein is as follows:
2 x 100grams Vintage Peony - 4 ply
please this is from a different batch to previously sent so it will not be identical however the dyes used and the process are the same
100% S/W Merino is - 400 metres Please feel free to weigh it as sometimes you get a extra grams and that means extra meterage (every 10grams give 40metres)
What needle size? Whatever gives you the correct gauge for the pattern - hope that helps :0).
I hand dye all my yarn in batches of 8-10 so even though they are all dyed together due to the nature of hand-dyeing colours may vary from skein to skein - if you were to buy more than one - which would obviously be fabulous - I will ensure to match them up and please ensure you purchase enough for your project as future dyelots may vary due to nature of dyeing small batches
I dye in my loft and my whole house is pet free and smoke free but the loft is always filled with music to help with the creative process
I try to represent the full range of the colours in the photo but please note colours may vary slightly from monitor to monitor - I take the photos in the daylight with minimum props as I want the yarn to be centre stage.
Gentle washing will keep your garment beautiful for longer. For best results, hand-wash your finished project with cool water and try to use a wool wash - I use a drop ( literally) in the cold water when giving these lovelies their final rinse
Due to nature of the dyes please test especially if you are mixing dark and light however I ensure that all the yarn is left overnight to ensure depth of colour and complete exhaustion of the dye - which means when I come back to the pot all the water is clear to minimise bleeding if any.
Beautiful colour, not normally my colours but couldn't resist. Can't wait to knit it up.
