 A collection of hand dyed colourways. Not designed as a true Fade set, but as a set of colours that all work together, providing contrast, difference in tonal value, but still colours that will work together when used in one project. 

Perfect for many of Andrea Mowry's patterns like Nightshift,  or Shifty, ideal for the spinner who wants to get creative with their handspun. 

Hand dyed on my Sock Blend- Superwash Cheviot, Silk & Bio-Nylon

Superwash British Cheviot blended with Tussah Silk and Bio-Nylon. This will spin up to be a hard wearing, machine washable yarn, great for socks and baby clothes, or anything that you might want to throw in the washing machine.

Bio-Nylon is a special kind of synthetic that's treated to breakdown in landfill conditions, the synthetic fibres are broken down in anaerobic conditions by the bacteria in the landfill. The production method also uses recycled waste water. 

70% Superwash Cheviot
15% Tussah Silk
15% Bio-Nylon
 

360g (12.7oz)
~60g (2.1oz) of each colour way. 

This fibre is hand dyed in small batches. Each colour way is unique, and not dyed to a recipe. 

These fibres have been dyed to exhaust using acid dyes, and then rinsed using hot water and detergent. I recommend you hand wash your spun yarn in warm water, using a mild pH neutral detergent. The no-rinse wool washes seems to be the most prone to causing bleeding so are best avoided.


Always wash a swatch in your machine before washing a finished item, for best results use a low temperature or cold water. Dye will fade at a faster rate if you machine wash compared to gentle hand washing.
