100grams of soft and squishy aran weight superwash merino wool in the manly Steelworks colourway, hand-dyed by me in Cornwall, England.

Weight: approx. 100gram per skein (price is per skein)
Yarn: 100% superwash Merino wool - smooth, clear stitch definition
Type: aran, worsted, 10ply
Length: approx. 166 metres (181 yards)
Recommended needle size: 4.5 - 5.5mm

Steelworks - a fantastic blend of 3 Jacquard dyes which will give a great distribution of shades, perfect for his (or her!) small accessories.

Each skein is slightly different in it's balance of shades bringing out the unique nature of hand-dyed yarns!

This is a superwash yarn, but gentle handwashing is recommended, as with all hand-dyed yarns.

Plenty in each soft squishy skein for a pair of gloves, a hat, etc... It's up to you! Take a look at my original knitting and crochet patterns for this weight of yarn here:

Frequently asked questions about SixSkeins

I am delighted to take on any requests for custom or wholesale orders - just ask!
Custom dye orders are priced the same as in-stock colourways.
They generally take around 2-3 weeks before they are ready for shipping, as long as I have the required base yarn in stock.
I offer discount for larger quantities of yarn purchased at the same time.
Please ask for your specific requirements and I'll let you know the timescale and cost.
All animal-based fibres (wool, silk, alpaca, cashmere, etc) are dyed with heat using Jacquard dyes and are as colourfast as you can get a hand-dyed yarn, although if regularly exposed to harsh sunlight they will fade the same as any other coloured fabric.
Gentle handwashing and drying (not tumble dryers) is a must as these are premium yarns which you'll want to last!

The plant-based fibres (bamboo, banana, linen, cotton, tencel) are cold-dyed with Procion MX dyes which always releases some of the colour over time, like denim jeans that fade. Handwash these yarns separately in cool water and drip-dry for best results.
I use recycled packaging where possible - if you prefer new (e.g. when the item is for a gift), just let me know when you order.
An additional giftwrap option is available for selection at checkout on suitable items.
