Nightshade is a hand-dyed 100g skein of chunky weight yarn. It is a semi-solid yarn dyed dark purple.
The photos of this yarn are on a grey base so appear slightly darker than can be expected on the cream coloured Texel base.
The base yarn is 100% British Texel. It was prepared and spun in Yorkshire and dyed in Dorset. The yarn is warm and plump and perfect for winter accessories such as hats. It’s smooth and has good stitch definition. It can feel a little course to begin with but softens with wear and washing.
Each chunky weight 100g skein is approximately 100m 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.
