Sprightly Merino/Nylon DK weight Electric Storm
DK weight Sprightly (Merino/Nylon) Yarn
2 in stock
An electric storm of colours – bright pink shines amongst a deep grey, with highlights of dark purples blending inbetween.
Sprightly is the workhorse of the sock weight yarns – with 25% nylon this is a tough yarn perfectly suited for socks, but the 75% merino makes it soft and wearable everyday close to your skin. It takes the dyes superbly so creates vivid, clear colours and gives great stitch definition. This is one of the softest, squishiest hand dyed yarn I dye! In this DK weight its perfect for gloves, socks or shawls, as the stitch definition is fantastic and its incredibly easy to wear.
Machine washable, although we always advise hand washing your hand dyed yarn.
75% superwash merino 25% Nylon
All the yarns are hand dyed by me, in my small home studio in Devon. I use professional dyes that are non toxic, and colourfast. The yarn is painted or kettle dyed by hand, then steam set until the dye has fully exhaust, washed and carefully rinsed before being hung outside to dry in the sea breeze ( when the weather allows – for really rainy days we have an indoor drying area too!). We take steps to reduce our environmental impact, and you’ll find an eclectic mix of new, repurposed and upcycled equipment in the studio, which is partially solar powered. I take all photos using natural daylight, and although I do my best to show them in their true colour, monitors can vary.
You can get ideas of what to use this yarn for by following me on Pinterest. I also post behind the scenes pictures and new stock on my Instagram page, and you can often find me chatting about yarn and what I am making over on my blog.
