Colour:  Shinjuku – black, purple and turquoise with splashes of neon, inspired by the iconic neon signs of Kabukichō, the red light district of Shinjuku, Tokyo. Part of our Japan Collection.

Due to the complex nature of the dyeing process for this shade, no two skeins are alike.

Campaign for Wool An exceptional yarn, spun from the only finest fleece that the sheep produces, it's the absolute best of British.

Awesome Aran has the softness and bounce you'd associate with merino. It's a great all-rounder, perfect for hats, scarves and warm sweaters (including the classic cabled Aran).

Bluefaced Leicester is a native British sheep breed. Its fleece has a subtle lustre, unique to the breed, which adds an exceptional depth of colour to our hand-dyed shades. Its long staple length makes it hard-wearing, and being a superwash yarn, it's easy to care for too.

Care of neons

Neon dyes are not as colour-fast as regular dyes. To keep them looking their best we recommend hand washing in cool water (although the yarn itself is machine washable).
