Hayton 4ply in Woodland Strawberries (Dyelot 150621)

Hand dyed soft, luxurious merino/cashmere/nylon 4ply sock yarn in colourway Woodland Strawberries - this is a delicate colourway inspired by the random wild strawberries that keep growing between the paving slabs in our garden! They’re really pretty though, so this colourway brings speckles of strawberry red alongside gentle washes of leaf green.

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. This three-fold yarn spun to a 4ply thickness 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).
