So 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.
Yarn: John Arbon's Devonia 4ply fingering. Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale.
Mass/length: approx 100g/388m 5 x 20g mini skeins.
Dyed with sweet chestnut husks, cochineal, oak galls, lavender cotton and sulphonated indigo.
Saturation: medium to dark.
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.
