The Wool Barn - Cashmere Sock - Belle Epoque
This extra fine merino base with 10% cashmere feels incredibly soft and plump. It takes colour beautifully and feels wonderfully soft next to skin. A little bit of added nylon provides strength, making it suitable for socks, luxurious shawls, garments and baby knits.
The Wool Barn yarns are dyed by hand in small batches. Every skein is unique due to the artisan nature of hand dyeing process. To achieve an even colour distribution in larger projects, alternate skeins every couple of rows.
About The Wool Barn:
The Wool Barn is a small artisan hand dyed yarn company based in Hertfordshire, England. The company was born out of love for knitting with high quality yarns and luxury fibres. They use traditional kettle dyeing methods and enjoy the slow process of making small batches of uniquely hand dyed yarns. From the very beginning they placed great emphases on sourcing only the best quality yarns from trusted UK suppliers that care for animal welfare and sustainability. Equally, their yarn dyeing process has been designed to have a minimum impact of the environment and packaging is 100% recyclable or biodegradable. As with anything hand made, every batch and every skein of yarn that they make is truly unique, which is what makes hand dyed yarn such wonderful and exciting material to work with.
