£18.50 / 100g skein
Shade: Shinjuku – black, purple and turquoise with splashes of neon, inspired by the iconic neon signs of Kabukichō, Shinjuku, Tokyo.
Due to the complex nature of the dyeing process for this shade, each skein has its own personality. If you are planning a larger project and want an even look, we recommend alternating skeins every few rows.
Plump, round, squishy, firm, springy and endlessly versatile! DK is the classic knitters' yarn gauge, great for most types of projects but especially sweaters, and we’ve created a colour range with this in mind.
Spun from the only finest fleece that the Bluefaced Leicester sheep produces, is it the absolute best of British, and having been farmed, milled, spun and dyed in the UK it has a low transport footprint.
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.
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).
