Askham 4ply in Meadow Rue (Dyelot 060421)

Hand dyed alpaca and silk 4ply yarn in colourway Meadow Rue - this gorgeous dusky shade is named after the herbaceous perennial, which comes in more than one shade but they're often a soft lilac (or pink).

Previously available as one of our mill dyed yarns, hand dyed Askham 4ply is soft, snuggly and luxurious making it ideal for a wide range of projects, and creates a fabric which is light and soft, yet warm and hardwearing too. It has drape, but is still perfectly usable for colourwork, hats, other accessories, garments, and more - it does make a really special cardigan or shawl though. Pair it with beads for something really amazing, or dress it down for a practical and warm item. It works either way!

We recommend that you wash dark colours separately or wash a swatch before using dark and light colours together.

As with all hand dyed yarns, I would recommend that you use two skeins at a time, alternating from each one every couple of rows/rounds (unless it's a one-skein project).
