Brimham Bio Fingering in Honeysuckle (Dyelot 040923)

Hand dyed merino and biodegradable nylon light fingering weight yarn in colourway Honeysuckle - a really gentle blend of warm orangey yellow, with delicate washes of orange and red.

Brimham Bio Fingering is a light fingering weight yarn and is a blend of superwash extrafine merino with biodegradable nylon. Biodegradable nylon is as durable and long-lasting while in standard use but will break down entirely within five years in landfill conditions. (For more information about biodegradable nylon see our blog post HERE). Light fingering weight yarn is slightly thinner than a standard 4ply/fingering weight but thorough group testing found that it is still suitable to use in fingering weight patterns for both knitting and crochet. This yarn has good drape and really clear stitch definition, working well for lace, brioche and cables but some of our testers said they thought it didn't have much 'give'/stretch. This yarn is machine washable on a cool gentle cycle, but we still recommend handwashing if possible for best results and longevity.

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).
