KIDMO MERINOH! Singles: Approximately 100g/395yds, 56/44 superwash extrafine Merino wool/superkid mohair. This is fingering weight yarn; a fine, dense singles base.

These were kettle-dyed with washes of red, fuchsia, coppery brown and navy blue with the yarn crowded in the pot so it’s mottled and variegated. Finally, they were glazed in a big twist with a dark blue-black wash. I used the same colours as Bluebeard at Night but a totally different method. Note that these hanks share the same colours but that they are all slightly different so you may want to alternate hanks if used together.

This is a sweet merino/mohair base - very soft and pearly lustrous. It’s a heavy-ish fingering weight; knitting as if with a sport base allows it to bloom and creates a lighter fabric whereas used as a fingering base it’s soft, dense and very warm. The mohair content is obvious in this base and like all singles it may pill with wear. This would be divine in any winter accessory, shawl, cape, sweater - you name it! About the only thing I’d avoid is socks, due to its construction.

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