The Galah or rose breasted cockatoo is smart, adaptable and a common sight in urban Australia, they are also beautiful and loud - we love beautiful and loud! This dove grey glazed with light to dark dusky pink is absolutely stunning and depending on your choice of use can be a gentle colour change or absolutely popping. Perfect.
This is a difficult colour to photograph as the dusky red glaze with grey halo shows as more red and less grey on camera but it is a beautiful effect that makes the red rich but a little more subtle. Give it a go, it’s gorgeous.
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.
