Askham 4ply in Dyepot Luck (Dyelot 160320)

Hand dyed alpaca and silk 4ply yarn in colourway Dyepot Luck - this a real mix of colours that I thought would go together, but they are pretty randomised (as you can see from the pics).

Just to note: we won't be able to honour requests for particular skeins from this dyelot - they will be allocated randomly - hence the name 'dyepot luck'.

Askham 4ply is well known and loved as our mill dyed range that is no longer in production. As the stock comes to an end we have decided to try it as a hand dyed offering and see how you all like it! This yarn 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! 

For pattern inspiration, check out our Knitspiration for 4ply board on Pinterest HERE. The cardigan shown is our Hut 8 pattern, and the fingerless mitts shown are our Rokeby pattern. 

Yarn info:
70% baby alpaca, 30% mulberry silk
2.5 - 4mm needles

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 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).
