This yarn is a luxurious blend of 50% Superfine Falkland Merino 18mic, 30% Baby Alpaca & 20% Mulberry Silk. A 4ply/ fingering weight yarn with 400m per 100g. The fibre is so very soft with the most beautiful drape. Perfect for making enveloping shawls. The colourway is inspired by the beautiful art of Wendy Andrew. All our skeins are hand-dyed in small batches using a range of professional acid dyes. We are conscious to be environmentally sound in our process and we, therefore, ensure that all the dye used is fully exhausted. We rinse the skeins until no colour remains, however, please be aware that a slight amount of colour bleed could occur and so we always suggest washing separately and by hand. All indie dyed yarns are unique by virtue of the techniques used. This means that no two skeins will ever be exactly the same - the charm of indie dyeing!
