The Old English Rose Collection inspired by the sumptuous David Austin roses ~ Perfect scrolled buds, open to large rosette-shaped flowers of high summer. We hope we have managed to capture the glory of the vintage English Rose in wool! The Old English Rose Collection of 5 x 20g mini cakes, is available in a Deluxe High Twist Merino Sock Yarn ~ 85% Extrafine Superwash Merino, 15% Nylon (360m / 100g). This yarn base is soft, strong and perfect for socks, shawls and accessories. 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!
