Hand dyed yarn in a vibrant shade of red. The hand dyed nature of this yarn means subtle variations in colour will be seen throughout the skein, giving a semi-solid colourway.

Yardage: Approximately 100g/166m per skein

Fibre content: 100% wool.

The wool in this yarn is from Bluefaced Leicester breed sheep, it is British in origin and has been superwash treated.

Washing instructions: Handwashing in cool water is recommended to preserve the colour.

Every attempt is made to remove residual dye from products, however, yarns and products made using them should be washed separately until you are happy with the colourfastness.

Please be aware that all computer monitors display colours differently and the yarn may vary a little from what you see, its a technical fact of life.

More a pure green and less blue-green than I was expecting, but a very beautiful color (and you never can be completely sure over the internet anyway, so I don't mind). Nice subtle variations in the color intensity that make it a real joy to knit up. Great feel, a yarn with substance but not itchy, and fantastic stitch definition for cables. Would be happy to buy here again.

I first bought this colourway at a yarn festival. I loved it so much that I bought it again to send to my Fibershare partner!

So happy with my beginner's spinning kit! The spindle is beautifully made--so simple, so elegant, and I just love it! I can't wait to get started... a lot of time now on YouTube looking at tutorials, etc... I don't want to ruin the lovely fiber with the spindle... LOL! Thank you for a great shopping experience! :)

I gave these as my monthly sock yarn swap with a friend. Ooo, she was delighted. Soft and beautiful. Should have bought two lots!
