New colorway!

This colorway is part of a new layering project - darker colors are layered over lighter, allowing the under-colors to shine through. The colors interact in unique ways within each batch.

Malachite: variegated shades of graphite and black over emerald and jade. 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 99 to 100g, approximately 330 to 335 yards
• Approximately 5 ½ to 6 stitches per inch on US #3-5 needles
• Hand dyed with color-fast acid dyes
• Machine or hand washable, dry flat
• Priced per skein. If multiple skeins are available, they are from the same batch
• There may be some variation from skein to skein, even within the same batch. For best results, alternate skeins every few rows.

Smooth and soft, a treat to knit. Four plies with a rounded construction, providing excellent stitch definition. Great for heavier weight socks, children’s garments or accessories you may want to machine wash. One skein is generally enough for a pair of socks (do check your pattern first … this is heavier than standard sock yarn, and you may need more for large sizes and/or complex patterns) or a lacy scarf. 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 misleading 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.
