This is our lovely Organic Merino wool in a double knitting weight, wound into 50g cakes so that you can start knitting straight away. The perfect choice for many projects, this is our popular range which is great value for money. Dyed in a wide range of colours with new shades added regularly to give a choice of colour combinations. This yarn takes the natural dyes very well to give deep and bright colours as well as more subtle tones.

There will be slight differences between dyelots so do contact us if it is important that they are the same and we can do a special dyelot for you. Due to the unpredictable nature of natural dyeing, there may be differences within dyelots too, in which case we suggest that you alternate between balls every couple of rows or so. Note also that some of the deeper colours, especially indigo, can rub off onto your hands when working – this is normal and it will wash off. A little dye may run on the first couple of washes, although the yarns have been mordanted which gives good colourfastness.

Please ensure you have selected your colour from the drop-down menu when ordering.

The yarn is dyed to order and although the processing time is up to 10 days we can often dispatch it quicker.
