Keld Aran in Bog Myrtle (Dyelot 190821)

Hand dyed superwash merino with linen aran weight yarn in colourway Bog Myrtle - none of us know quite what this colour is; it's somewhere between a faded red and orange, with earthy and zingy undertones as well.

This is a beautiful yarn - it is next-to-skin soft as you might imagine from the extrafine merino; and the linen content adds a gorgeous visual interest. In darker colourways it is more visible as white-ish fibres which are spun in but also are present on the surface. The linen can't be felt so it doesn't take anything away from the softness of the wool. As well as being soft and fairly drapey, this yarn is quite sturdy too - knitted or crocheted at a medium to tighter gauge it has good structure. The stitch definition is great, and this yarn is an absolute joy to both work with and wear.

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).
