Japanese Maple is a hand-dyed 100g skein of DK weight yarn. It is a variegated yarn dyed red, orange and golden yellow.

The base yarn is 100% non-superwash Bluefaced Leicester. It was prepared and spun in Yorkshire and dyed in Dorset. The yarn is soft and and has a shine from the natural lustre of Bluefaced Leicester wool.

I would recommend this yarn for all sorts of projects including garments and accessories. Most people would be comfortable wearing this wool next to their skin. I don’t recommend this yarn for socks.

Each DK weight 100g skein is approximately 230m in length.

The yarn has not been superwash treated so requires gentle hand washing unless you intend for it to felt. Due to the dyeing process no two skeins are identical.

Please note that while all efforts have been made to provide an accurate colour representation, colours may vary on different monitors and devices so the shade may not be identical to what you see on your screen.
