Shade: Dark Tower – semi-solid dark charcoal grey

Our collection of neutral greys is inspired by London’s modern architectural landmarks. The darkest of the collection, this shade is dedicated to The Shard and the new wave of tall skyscrapers. Unlike their Brutalist predecessors that celebrate their structural materials, these towers disguise concrete skeletons with sharp, tinted glass. They loom heavily on the skyline despite their reflective qualities.

About this yarn

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 ('BFL') is a native British sheep breed beloved for its softness, and our yarns are made from the finest fleece that the sheep produces. It has a subtle lustre unique to the breed that gives our hand-dyed colours an incredible depth. Bluefaced Leicester fleece has an unusually long staple length (up to 15 cm/6"), which delivers superb wear and resistance to pilling in finished garments. Being a superwash yarn, it's easy to care for, too!
