Hayton 4ply in Winter Berries (Dyelot 301019)

Hand dyed soft, luxurious merino/cashmere/nylon 4ply sock yarn in colourway Winter Berries - this colourway is a silver base with really tiny pops/sprinkles of rich red and subtle dashes of green; it’s inspired by the pops of berries on branches in the winter.

Hayton 4ply is a beautiful mix of smooth, bouncy merino, a little nylon to make it more hard wearing, and a dash of cashmere for the ultimate luxury. It knits with both bounce and drape in equal measure - using larger needles and a lacy pattern creates drape, whilst smaller needles and a closer stitch type creates a nice warm, cosy fabric. The mix of fibres combines the best of both worlds.

The merino is actually superwash merino (ie 'shrink resist'), however due to the cashmere content I have found that this yarn will felt a bit in the washing machine, hence my recommendation to 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 yarn, I would recommend that you use two skeins at a time, alternating from each one every couple of rows/rounds (unless only one skein per colour is used).
