This listing is for 1 Skein of 4-ply yarn.

Polwarth is a versatile strong wearing fibre and has the softness of high quality merino. This yarn can be worked for light use projects such as shawls or cowls or paired with a mini containing nylon for toes and heels would make a fun sock.

Every skein of yarn has a story and at RavensWood Fibre Co, I get to be a part of that story.

Yarn and the process of working it by hand is a sensual experience. We are drawn first by colour, we are held by touch, we hold to dream of the who, the what, the where and sometimes why we need the yarn. A skein of hand dyed yarn is more than a string for a project. The colours and patterns draw us in. Every stitch anticipates the next colour change and how that will play against the fabric we create. We can find the rhythm of the needles/hooks meditative. When we work with hand dyed yarns we know that although you may see similarity in another skein, this skein is special. It is unique in the depth and breadth of pattern. It was built with kind hands that loved it from its birth to your hand.

What’s in a name? It’s the final gift. A part of my soul that I share with you. A reflection, a story, and often a giggle as I send this piece of me out to the world for you to continue its story.

I make every effort to ensure that the colours are photographed as accurately as possible using natural light, but every computer screen can be a little different.

To block your garment, add a good splash of vinegar to hot bath water. Although we make every effort to ensure that our yarns are rinsed well, different water conditions in your area may cause some colours to bleed. By using the above technique for your first wash, this should eliminate any possibility of spoiling your project. To keep your yarns bight and happy, I suggest that you hand wash your finished garments with cold water, rinse well and lay flat to dry on a clean towel.
