100grams of hand-dyed squooshy merino double knitting wool in a gorgeous variegated yellow colourway, hand-dyed by me in Cornwall, England.

Weight: approx. 100 grams per skein (price is per skein)
Yarn: 100% merino wool
Type: Double Knitting (DK), light worsted, 8ply
Length: approx. 225 metres (246 yards)
Recommended needle size: 3.5 - 4.5mm (US 4-7)

Barley Fields - a fabulous multi-tonal kettle-dyed colourway using a blend of 3 Jacquard dyes - Golden Yellow, Bright Yellow and Olive.

Each skein is is slightly different in it's balance of shades - that's why they're potluck yarns!

Gentle handwash recommended, as with all hand-dyed yarns.

Plenty in each soft squishy skein for a quick and easy project... Do a little web-surfing to find lots of free patterns!

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.
