Shade: Shinjuku – black, purple and turquoise with splashes of neon, inspired by the iconic neon signs of Kabukichō, Shinjuku, Tokyo. This is a repeatable shade (batch 10.2023).

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.

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.

Caring for neons

Neon dyes are not as colour-fast as regular dyes. To keep them looking their brightest and best we recommend hand washing in cold water (even if the yarn itself is machine washable). Dry away from direct sunlight.
