Hayton DK in Silver Birch (Dyelot 060719)

Hand dyed soft, luxurious merino/cashmere/nylon DK yarn in colourway Silver Birch - a very light and subtle slightly greenish silver.

Hayton DK, like its 4ply counterpart, 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 this yarn may 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).
