It’s exciting to be able to dye onto one of my favourite worsted spun bases.  This beautiful longwool blend takes the dye readily and has been fantastic for painting variegated colourways as well as the usual lovely semi-solids and tonals. 

I would wholeheartedly recommend Devonia for its longevity and adaptability.  Whether you need a yarn for texture, cables or colourwork the finished project will look truly fantastic.

This base is also available in 50g single skeins and mini skein bundles.

Yarn: John Arbon's Devonia DK.  Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale.  Pure Devon woolly goodness.

Mass/length: 100g/ 225m

Saturation: medium to dark

Country of Origin: wool sourced and spun in Devon.

The S/S 2021 collection came about using dried dye stuffs gathered last autumn. Dyers as well as food growers have a 'hungry gap' season so I used these leaves and husks along with stored exhausts to develop this harmonious palette inspired by the shingle on one of our city beaches. The idea of the added pop of blue-green came from the lakes and icecaps in Chile.

Dyed with oak leaves, chestnut husks, dyers greenweed, Saxon blue, logwood, alkanet root and miscellaneous red exhausts.

Colourways in photo order:

Rodda's - a pearly natural solid cream ideal for colourwork such as stand out yoke designs

Shingle - variegated greys, purples and browns on a base of Bath Stone

Dulce Rose - a wonderful tonal velvety pink dyed on Dulce de Leche

Grey Oyster - a semi solid neutral which, like a good paint, takes on different characteristics according to the light

Dulce de Leche - a rich semi solid in the caramel/highland cow colour family

Torres del Paine - a lightly variegated blue-green pop to the collection 

Bath Stone - a warm honeyed pinkish beige semi-solid reminiscent of the sun on the buildings in Bath

Country of Origin: wool sourced and spun in Devon.

Care: cool, gentle handwash with pH neutral soap and rinse.  Blot gently with a towel and block to shape.  Yarn has been rinsed clear after dyeing but leave-in wool washes can cause bleeding.

Effort is made to capture colours as accurately as possible but monitors etc differ.  Please message if you would like to discuss colours.
