Keld Twist in Ivy (Dyelot 101023)

Hand dyed superwash merino with linen fingering weight yarn in colourway Ivy - a medium stonewashed shade of green which is a bit less earthy than Coppice and not as saturated as Larch.

Keld Twist is the same wonderful blend of superwash merino with linen as found in Keld Fingering and Keld Aran. 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. Keld Twist is two plies spun together giving this yarn and the resulting fabric a bit more structure than the singles fingering weight. 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.

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).
