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. Also available in 50g and 100g single skeins, sets and mini skein bundles.
Yarn: John Arbon's Devonia 4ply fingering. Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale.
Mass/length: approx 55g/ 210m
Dyed with logwood. The shawl below was knitted with these minis held double plus a set of 'Tidna Shute Bluebells' and some undyed Devonia DK. The pattern is Drachenfels by Melanie Berg which is easily adapted to DK yarn or any mini sets.
Saturation: medium to dark. Please note that you may experience a small amount of crocking (rub off) on your hands from the more saturated shades. This is harmless and will wash off.
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.
