Crates Of Wool Hand-dyed Yarn - Maltster DK 100g


This yarn is 100% Blue Faced Leicester from the UK. Yarn aficionados know that these sheep produce beautifully lustrous, strong and hard-wearing yarns, yet it's still soft enough to wear next to the skin.  Hand-dyed by our own Deb Cunningham, here in Ware.  Available only through Crates of Wool.

This is a hand-dyed yarn.  As such, there may be differences between skeins due to the nature of the hand-dyeing process.  We gently rinse all yarns to remove any dye residue, but some colours - particularly the more saturated shades - may run slightly when you first wash them.  We recommend washing hand-dyed yarns by hand, with cool water and a gentle detergent.
