Hayton 4ply in Lagoon (Dyelot 070622)

Hand dyed soft, luxurious merino/cashmere/nylon 4ply sock yarn in colourway Lagoon - this is a sister colour to Harbour - it’s a lighter version of it, so still quite zingy but it doesn’t pop as much.

Hayton 4ply is a beautiful mix of smooth, bouncy merino, a little nylon to make it more hard wearing, and a dash of cashmere for the ultimate luxury. This three-fold yarn spun to a 4ply thickness knits with both bounce and drape in equal measure - using larger needles and a lacy pattern creates drape, whilst smaller needles and a closer stitch type creates a nice warm, cosy fabric. The mix of fibres combines the best of both worlds.

The merino is actually superwash merino (ie 'shrink resist'), however due to the cashmere content I have found that this yarn will felt a bit in the washing machine, hence my recommendation to handwash only.

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

As with all hand dyed yarn, I would recommend that you use two skeins at a time, alternating from each one every couple of rows/rounds (unless only one skein per colour is used).
