Grey! We can’t stop telling everyone why grey is great: there is a grey to suit every skin tone, it’s classic and timeless alone and not only compliments but lifts the colours you pair it with, grey is the frontman with nothing to prove who is happy to be the supporting cast and does it to perfection. There is nothing dull or boring about grey. For the avoidance of doubt - we adore it! This semi-solid silver Dove grey is the perfect choice if you want to get more grey in your stash.

The Decadence base is our favourite base for light jumpers, shawls and garments that benefit from absolutely incredible softness, drape and lustre- It’s called Decadence for a reason. When the light hits it the colours look jewel like and catch the eye, the drape makes this conform beautifully and the softness, well, we talk a lot about ‘touchability’ here but this is a pleasure to work with, to wear and it’s almost impossible not to stroke. This is luxury that will last. You may think we sound rather effusive about this mix of colour and fibre and you’d be right, we have more of this than we could knit in a year.

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.
