Hand Dyed Silk/Merino Wool Yarn, ~ 1135 yards
50% Fine Grade Merino Wool/50% Tussah Silk
Lace Weight

Hand dyed with color-fast acid dyes, in variegated shades of chocolate, chestnut, cinnamon and a little khaki. This was difficult to photograph, and is much nicer than the photos. The colors are more distinct, and the silk gives it an understated glow, both qualities my amateur photography skills were unable to duplicate properly. Please note that I have tried to capture the color accurately, but my camera (and perhaps your monitor) may result in some variation.

• Each skein weighs 103g, approximately 1135 yards
• Gauge is difficult to recommend, as this is intended for lace knitting where gauge and needle size can vary widely. As an estimate, though, I would say 7-10 stitches per inch on US #0-3 needles.
• Hand dyed with color-fast acid dyes
• Hand wash or dry clean, dry flat
• Priced per skein. If multiple skeins are available, they are from the same batch

A true luxury yarn, lightweight and lustrous, with a beautiful shimmer. Knitted fabric is very soft with great drape. This would make a luxurious shawl or wrap, or double or triple strand it for a scarf on larger needles. This yarn has been dyed and stored in a dry, smoke-free environment.

Frequently asked questions about BlackSheepDyeworks

June 3, 2016: I have temporarily stopped shipping to some international destinations due to erroneous information Etsy is displaying regarding VAT. VAT/GST is NOT included in the price of my yarns, regardless of the text Etsy has inserted below the price on my listings; rather, it is the responsibility of the buyer. VAT inclusion is 'not applicable' to me as a seller, as I'm not registered to collect VAT. If you would like to make a purchase, and don't see your country listed under 'ships to', please contact me - I'd be happy to set up a custom listing for you. My apologies for this confusing VAT statement on my listings; unfortunately Etsy will not correct or remove it.
