Item details

Listing is for one skein but several are available.

British wool, ethically produced and fully traceable in a fingering/sport weight. Not superwash treated; worsted spun in the UK using fleece from merino sheep that graze on the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic. Combined with mulberry silk in a 75% wool/25% silk mix.

Hand dyed in East Yorkshire. using professional acid dyes manufactured in South Yorkshire to produce colours that are a delight to work with and to use.

Base: 75% British Falkland merino, 25% mulberry silk fingering

Colourway: Midnight sun - inspired by a digital painting done by my son Paul. It made me think of the Midnight sun in a Norwegian summer

This is ultra soft and feels beautifully smooth. Perfect for shawls, cowls, hats and garments. Note - this yarn is NOT superwash and finished items need to be handwashed in cool water.

100g (approx) skeins with approx 400 metres of yarn.

Dyed in small batches using professional acid milling dyes. The dyes are fully exhausted in the dye bath then the skeins are washed and rinsed until no colour remains in the rinsing water. However, to keep the colours looking as fresh as possible, hand wash your finished item in lukewarm water using a mild wool wash product with a slightly acid pH. Do not soak. A slight amount of colour bleed may occur in the first few washes so always wash separately.

Even when a colourway is repeated, and even when dyed in the same batch variations may occur so alternating skeins for big projects is advisable.

I love the yarn I got from Katryn! Flora Honeypot is a charming colourway and the yarn feels so soft! I am very much looking forward to using it and wearing it! Katryn also included some thoughtful little gifts in my package: a teabag from Yorkshire and a stitch marker. Very happy with my purchase!
