Keld Twist in Steel (Dyelot 101023)

Hand dyed superwash merino with linen fingering weight yarn in colourway Steel - a light, neutral to warm grey.

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).
