This is a magical hand-dyed marl entirely unique to RiverKnits! It is a smooth, worsted-spun 2-fold yarn with a lot of lustre and amazing softness. The Bluefaced Leicester breed produces wool that is strong and soft on your skin, making it ideal for a wide range of projects. This yarn will work fantastically in statement shawls, hats, mittens, and jumpers. The multi-coloured marl will add a lot of fun and colour to your creations. We recommend combining skeins with each other or with a solid in stripes, or mosaic and stranded colourwork for some wonderful effects.

Please remember that this yarn is not superwash wool, so it has the potential to felt. See below for care instructions.

Riverknits hand dye all their yarn in heir studio in the Royal Ordnance Depot, Weedon, by the Grand Union Canal. This yarn has been hand dyed in small batches, and the colour consistency between batches is very good but can’t be guaranteed, so we recommend that you buy enough skeins for your project. If your project uses more than one skein, we also recommend that you alternate / stripe the skeins throughout.

Caring for your yarn: When it comes to blocking or washing your project, use lukewarm water with your favourite wool wash, and lay flat to dry. Do not machine wash or tumble dry this yarn. We take great care to thoroughly set the dye and rinse the yarn afterwards, but differing water temperatures and chemicals can cause some dye to bleed. If you’re using it in a multicoloured project, we recommend washing a swatch first to test for colour-fastness.
