100g hand dyed 4ply sport weight yarn, approx. 400m/100g. Springy, 17.5 micron non-superwash Merino, with a lovely bounce. This one has less drape than our Sock Yarn, more wooly feel and a great stitch definition. Speckles don't come out as sharp as other bases, but this base is truly stunning and very versatile. Slightly heavier than sock yarn at the same yardage.
Colours shift beautifully from one to another. Randomly dyed to prevent striping or pooling, as much as possible, our yarns create variegated effect that looks good in plain stockinette or advanced stitch motifs.
Gentle hand wash recommended. Sport weight, approx. 400m/100g. Custom spun exclusively for Hedgehog Fibres and 100% mulesing free.
Hand-dyed in small batches in Cork, Ireland. Dyelots may vary though we represent every dyelot as accurately as possible in the product photos. Colours may vary from skein to skein, even within the same dyelot. If you buy more than one, we will do our best to match them up. Please ensure you buy enough to finish your project as future dyelots may vary. Please note, although we take great care in photographing our yarns, colours may vary slightly from monitor to monitor.
Gentle washing will keep your project beautiful for longer. For best results, hand-wash your finished project with a drop of detergent or wool wash. If combining light and dark colours, please swatch as the yarns may bleed. This is especially important if using deep reds. To minimise bleeding, hand-washing in cold water is the safest option.
