Madder red is a natural dye and one of the dyes responsible for historical fabrics being much more colourful than we usually see depicted in popular culture - it was entirely likely to see blues, reds, yellows and more, people have always been people and people love colour. This acid dyed semi solid is like a supercharged madder red so you can go out and make the Vikings jealous.

This base is 100% Superwash Merino, soft, bouncy, so touchable and perfect for everything from hats to jumpers.

Recommended care: Can be machine washed cool on a gentle cycle but we recommend hand washing to preserve the vibrancy of the dye.

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.
