About Hand Painted Abstract Yarn
Each yarn skein is an abstract painting unto itself. Although potentially painted in batches every skein will differ. I do repeat my colourways, but they are never exactly the same as the ones that came before. I am guided by new inspirations each time I dye.
If you are interested in larger quantities (say enough to knit a sweater) of any of my yarn please contact me I am happy to do custom orders and offer sweater quantity discounts. I can even dye yarn to an inspiration photo (see the custom order section under FAQ).
This Eco WashMerino Yarn is made up of two strands of organic wool singles, this is a premier heavy fingering weight yarn. It can be used in knitting machines, for hand knitting, or in weaving as warp or weft. It has beautiful drape and anti shrink properties.

This is 100% Eco Wash Wool treated with enzymes to decrease the chances of felting. I still recommend hand washing gently with Eucalan of Unicorn Fibre Wash and Rinse, however you can put eco wash wool in your washing machine (at your own risk) on the gentle cycle using a wool appropriate soap. See the Woolly Washing section of my shop for these products.
