"Bordeaux" tonal - 4ply
"Bordeaux" is a hand dyed tonal colourway on our "House Elf Liberty" base - 85% SW Extra Fine Merino, 15% Nylon - 4ply. 100g / 400m
Our tonal colourways are not semi solids, but are dyed in 3 separate layers, giving the colourway depth and interest, without taking away from accompanying speckled and hand painted colourways and give you the option to match them for contrast or fades.
If you are unsure whether a tonal is working with another colourway you picked, please do not hesitate to email us and we will provide you with pictures of them next to each other, to help you decide.
We know how hard it is to match skeins, even more so to do this by pictures only, so please be sure that we will do our best to help you pick your perfect match.
The extrafine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. A little nylon is added for extra durabilty.The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin. This yarn is so versatile and can be used for any next to skin project (scarves, jumpers etc) as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and gloves. Each skein of yarn is hand dyed with professional acid dyes and treated with wool care after, for a perfect finish. As each batch is dyed by hand, there can be slight colour variations between each batch, so if you wish to purchase more than one skein for your knitting or crochet project, or require a different base, please get in touch and I will ensure each skein is from the same batch, and/or on the base required. Please also note that while we do our best to accurately capture the colour of the yarn in the picture, the colours may slightly differ due to variations in monitors and screens.It is recommended to handwash your yarn/ finished object and lay flat to dry.
