I feel a Bad Moon Rising but in this case it’s just a nod to CCR and not a sign of trouble on the way (although, no judgement here if you get up to cosy mischief). A popular song for a popular colourway, this ombre is a great mix of both bright and deep colours with a pure fire red transitioning into jet black, when worked you get a gloriously dramatic black and subtle change to deep red with bright lines of hot bright red, delicious.
This 100% Superwash Merino base is next to skin soft, bouncy and full, perfect for everything from hats to jumpers.
Recommended care: Can be machine washed cool on a wool/handwash cycle. We recommend hand washing to preserve the best of the yarn and colour. Do not bleach. Do not wring out. Do not tumble dry.
While we do our best to keep our colours consistent each hand dyed yarn is one of a kind so we advise alternating skeins in a multi-skein project. See FAQs for more information.
