Tempo 4ply in Wild Orchid (Dyelot 140421)

Hand dyed 75% superwash wool, 25% nylon 4ply sock yarn in colourway Wild Orchid - this is a variegated colourway and every skein is a little different. It combines muted shades of purples, aubergine, and golds.

Tempo is a brilliant all-round 4ply sock yarn - it softens considerably after washing for next-to-skin wear. With the nylon content being paired with a more coarse/less fine merino fibre, it is especially hard wearing and well suited if it's going to be well-worn and washed a lot. It is ideal for things like cardis, hats, shawls and gloves, though I recommend you put it through the washing machine at least once to soften it.

75% superwash merino, 25% nylon
2.5 - 4mm needles
14 WPI
Machine washable

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).
