Coniston Fingering in Pumpkin Chai Latte (Dyelot 221119)

Hand dyed fingering weight singles yarn blending extrafine merino and super kid mohair in colourway Pumpkin Chai Latte.

Coniston Fingering is Carlisle Fingering's posh sibling! It is a blend of  beautiful extrafine merino with luxurious superkid mohair (the finest and softest fibres obtained from the first shearing) all lovingly spun into a singles yarn. It gives you the effect of holding Carlisle Fingering double with a strand of Eldwick Lace but in a single yarn. We just love the combination of a single ply with a beautiful mohair halo. It is soft, fuzzy, drapey but with a little bounce too, and just a sheer delight to work with. We have tested it at a tighter gauge where it behaved well with firmness and bounce, up to a large loose gauge where it created a very light and soft fabric with drape. 

Stats:
56% Extrafine Superwash Merino / 44% Superkid Mohair

2.5 - 4mm needles
Handwash only and 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, we 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).
