Darling white flecks of linen and superfine merino creates a happy microclimate for sweaters, hats, mittens, scarves, shawls and blankets. The linen content offers a beautiful drape.

 *Limited supply available, please order full amount required for your project as exact colourway won’t be repeated.

Each skein has been hand dyed with natural resources. This is a semi-solid/random tonal hand-dyed colourway. Handwash your garments with pH neutral detergent (I recommend this for superwash treated and non-treated yarns) and dry in a shady spot. Store your naturally dyed garments out of direct sunlight.

Small lot dyeing means colour differs from batch to batch, and often within the same dye lot - the charm of natural dyeing. I recommend you alternate skeins when working on garments. I do my best to represent colours accurately in images, but they can differ. Different monitors & devices can show different shades of the photo.

This is an imported base, a blend not available in Aotearoa/New Zealand. The superfine merino is grown & spun in South African, the linen is from Belgium.
