‘Orchid’, a hand dyed 100g skein of 4ply/fingering Corriedale & Mohair yarn. This is a variegated yarn dyed shades of purple. Due to the dyeing process no two skeins are identical. This skein was in the show sale basket so has markings on the label.
This yarn is 50% Falkland Corriedale and 50% British Mohair. It is spun in Yorkshire and dyed in Dorset. Each 100g skein is approximately 400m in length.
Although this yarn does not contain Nylon, it is suitable for socks because Mohair adds strength. The yarn has a wonderful lustre that is difficult to photograph, although every effort has been taken to photograph the yarn accurately.
The yarn has not been superwash treated so requires gentle hand washing unless you intend to create felt.
Please note that colours may vary on computer monitors, so the shade may not be identical to what you see on your screen.
