Oakworth DK in Copper Bucket (Dyelot 240619)

Hand dyed pure New Zealand Polwarth wool in colourway Copper Bucket - rich, saturated copper, named after my old coal bucket.

Polwarth is a breed of sheep with a long, soft, fine fleece, which is the result of cross breeding merino with Lincoln sheep (developed in Australia during 1880). This yarn is a nice firm, crisp, bouncy yarn, which has great stitch definition and is next-to-skin soft.

100% superwash NZ Polwarth
3.5 - 4.5mm needles
Machine washable on a gentle cycle
Lay flat to dry

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).
