Askham 4ply in Apricot Tulip (Dyelot 060421)

Hand dyed alpaca and silk 4ply yarn in colourway Apricot Tulip - a lovely light and quite bright apricot inspired by some of my favourite spring tulips.

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).
