Hand Dyed Wool
“I am always fascinated by the textures and colours to be found in that fascinating zone between rock pools and the crashing surf of the Southern Ocean. Time is a meaningless concept in these environments. All that matters is the myriad of seaweeds moving in unison with the waves as they crash and recede back into the deep green deadly rips beyond the rocks.”
Special listing of 10 hanks of hand dyed speckle yarn. Created due to clients’ requests for larger quantities for bigger projects. All dyed at the same time over the course of an entire day and a half to make a lovely batch.
Hand dyed yarn hanks. Approximately 980 grams in total of 100% Merino wool. 8 ply wool. A combined length of approximately 1676 metres presented as ten hanks in total.
Soft, squishy yarn in this limited edition batch with a lot of different base dyes used to create this set and another two days to fully dry in clean country air after washing in rainwater.
Each jumbo pack batch I create has a pricing variance due to yarn base pricing differentials I face when I purchase.
There may be a couple of tiny knots in this wool. Some hanks have a couple of knots, other hanks have none at all. I have left the knots in place so you can decide whether you cut and join in a row of work or cut and rejoin at the beginning or end of a row.
Lay out the hanks side by side to see the colour variances and then work out your intended plan of knitting, crochet or weaving. Alternatively, mix up the hanks at random. Alternate hanks to create a more even spread of colour as these hanks are unique within their own right but part of a batch dye lot that is unique.
Forget the chocolates and flowers; they don’t last. Give a gift that will give joy to the maker in your life.
(4mm needles, approximately 168 meters of wool in each hank, 10 x10 cm square swatch – 20 stitches x 28 rows)
