Milburn DK™ BFL/Silk in Night Sky; 50g ball (Dyelot -)

TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK: A new batch is in production. We hope to have this back in stock by early October.

Soft and drapey British Bluefaced Leicester wool blended with silk in shade Night Sky, a rich and glowing royal blue. This yarn comes in balls meaning you can cast on immediately! 

Night Sky can be used as a close alternative for hand-dyed colourways Midnight and Tarn.

This yarn is so light to wear, and yet lovely and warm and hardwearing, with gorgeous, rich depth of colour and a beautiful sheen from the silk. It's great for a really wide range of projects, and being machine washable makes it a bit more practical.

We recommend that if you are planning to use a dark colour with a pale colour to make a swatch with them both and wash it to make sure no colour contamination occurs before starting your project. Hot water in particular can make colours run; if in doubt use cool water and no soap/detergent.

Current dyelots in stock are: 

We only have these dyelots but our Stockists may have previous dyelots. Find a list of our stockists HERE. There is very little variation in the colour between our mill dyed yarn dyelots, so you should be able to use multiple dyelots in one project. We always fulfill orders from a single dyelot where possible.
