Item details

‘Be Mine’ is a semi-solids yarn with a base of rich, dark red shot through with areas of darker red and deep, dark, cerise pinks.

Our ‘Temptingly Twisted’ yarn is a blend of Superwash South American Merino and Nylon. It is therefore squishy and soft, yet strong and robust. It is spun with a high twist, making a lustrous, smooth yarn with a tight twist and its own subtle sheen. It’s the perfect yarn for shawls, scarves, hats, gloves, mittens or socks that would benefit from the excellent stitch definition given by the high twist. Detailed patterning and lace look truly fabulous knitted up in this yarn. Stocking and garter stitch take on a whole new look. The addition of nylon gives this blend extra strength, making it very suitable for socks. Of course, it’s also great for larger garments. South America Merino is a lovely soft wool and is produced without recourse to Mulesing.

As knitters, we know what we want from a hand-dyed skein of yarn. Every skein is carefully rinsed to remove excess dye. Tangles are off the list! So all our yarn is re-wound to ensure there are no tangles in your lovely new skeins. We also clearly mark the ends of the yarn so you won’t have to hunt for them.

Here at Hummingbird Yarns we hand-dye using professional-grade acid dyes in our smoke free home studio. We usually dye very small batches of unique, one-off colourways, so please make sure that you buy enough yarn to complete your intended project. If you would like a larger quantity of a similar colourway please get in touch.

Yarn: ‘Temptingly Twisted’ 4 ply / fingering /sock High Twist
Fibre content: 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon
Weight: 100 grams
Length: Approx. 365 metres /400 yards

Although this is a Superwash yarn and can therefore be machine washed on a wool cycle, we recommend that you treat your new yarn kindly by hand-washing in cool water in order to keep the colours looking their best. Please wash separately until you are happy that your garment is completely colourfast.

We do our utmost to take photographs which represent colours as closely as possible to the actual yarn colour in our listings, but please take into account that different monitors may show colours differently.

We love seeing what you’ve created with your yarn from Hummingbird yarns. Please find us on Facebook and share a photo with us or #hummingbirdyarns on Instagram.
