Keld Fingering in Zeppelin (Dyelot 160720)

Hand dyed superwash merino with linen fingering weight yarn in colourway Zeppelin.

Keld fingering is a beautiful blend of superwash merino with linen. The linen stands out on medium-dark colours as it doesn't take the dye the same as the wool, so on a lot of colourways it has a marled effect. The overall look is a slightly uneven yarn (it does have some gentle slubs) with linen fibres providing a little fluff, depth, and texture. It's ever so gorgeous and is ideal for summer accessories and garments, working well at a loose gauge as well as a standard 4ply gauge. It's a little thicker than its counterpart Carlisle Fingering, thanks to the linen content. If you fancy something a bit different, this is your yarn!

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).
