Listing for one 100g skein of luxuriously soft but hard wearing 4 ply Merino Extrafine yarn, dyed by hand using permanent, professional techniques.

Colourway – Rascal Raspberry. Bright but soft – does that make sense?! Raspberry Pink with a splodge of purple and dashes of orange, natural, red and blue. A fun and beautifully soft yarn.

Base – Professionally produced 100% Extrafine Superwash Merino Wool.

Extrafine merino is used so it feels soft and gentle against the skin. The yarns are worsted spun from extra long staple fibres to produce a yarn that is fine and strong with a silky feel. Very soft and springy, the 4 plies and twist provide extra robustness.

A very versatile yarn, it can be used for socks, shawls, wraps, mittens and light jumpers.

Free shipping on all items.

Yarn Caking: if you wish for this skein to be shipped as a Yarn Cake, please add a note to Seller. This will be done as free of charge.

Washable in cold water on a gentle cycle. Recommend Hand-washing to help maintain the vibrant hand-dyed colours.

Approx 400m per 100gm skein

Recommended Needle Size: 2.5 – 4mm needles
Gauge (stocking stitch): 28sts x 36 rows over 10cm/4 inches

I am a busy Nona, lucky enough to have ‘retired’ and now busier than ever. Dyeing yarn caught my imagination when I was hunting for some thicker sock yarn for my son and found it limited. So I dyed him some and the bug took hold.

I also love making accessories such as shawls and scarves. Only so many a girl needs though! So surplus items will be added to my store.

I’m not looking to make a fortune but any surplus I make will go on special care items for the dogs I foster for a local rescue. A cosy blanket designed for incontinent ex breeding dogs, special harnesses, the right nutrition and basic veterinary care come at a cost. The TLC they desperately need I provide for free.

So I’m hoping my obsession with colours and yarn can go a small way to helping these souls find a new least of life.
