POLLY 4-PLY: Approximately 100g/438 yards superwash Polwarth wool. This is fingering/sock weight yarn; a fine, strong four-ply base.

These were kettle-dyed with first a tonal layer of light bordeaux then a wash of intense hot pink and finally a very mottled wash of black. The resulting colours range from hot pink through violet, lavender, purple, grey and very dark grey/black. Note that this is a highly variegated colourway and each hank is slightly different, as is each batch of this colourway.

Polwarth is a breed of sheep that is 75% Merino crossed with Lincoln. This is a lustrous, soft but sturdy yarn, shiny and slightly "crisp". It is not quite as soft as Merino and a little more toothy. It drinks up colour in the dyepot!

While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
