A separate listing for this limited edition mini skein set in beautiful autumn tones that bring to mind my favourite autumn things - crunchy fallen leaves, crisp mornings, the low orange sun leading a mild afternoon into a chill evening best spent in front of a fire with my favourite drink, Mulled Cider, and some crumbly, buttery traditional Scottish tablet. Happy dogs, tired legs and hands busy with knitting in the warm, a perfect autumn night.
This is one of our favourite sock bases - soft, strong, very little pilling & wears in quickly without wearing out. An excellent workhorse sock yarn that we keep coming back to, sock after sock. These strengths make it ideal for lots of projects, the BFL lending drape and lustre to a versatile yarn.
Recommended care: This is Superwash BFL and nylon so can be machine washed at low temperatures but we recommend hand washing to keep the dye looking it’s best.
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.
