Colourway name: Fjord Wondering # 71
These skeins are called Fjord wonderings because I wondered off the path a little and explored and played with the dyes and different techniques. This is a colourway that was dyed as a once off, non repeating colourway or there was a colour difference to the original recipe. Sometimes these skeins can also be slightly underweight or overweight. They will only appear here in the outlet at a discounted price but the yarn is of the same excellent quality as the yarns in the actual shop.
Trollfjord sock base is durable enough for socks yet soft enough to use for shawls, hats, mittens and garments or even children´s clothing. It contains non-superwash wool but you can still machine wash on a wool program at 30 degrees with a detergent specifically for wool. However I always prefer to handwash my knitwear in general. Dry flat and do not tumble dry. I have used professional acid dyes and thoroughly washed and rinsed this yarn with a gentle wool wash detergent. I do however recommend washing items separately for the first couple of washes as very minimal colour bleeding may occur. This base is produced in the EU and contains Norwegian wool.
All skeins are hand-dyed and are repeatable colourways but due to the hand-dyeing process they will not always be identical. I recommend if using for a garment, that you alternate skeins every 2 rows to blend the colours to avoid obvious colour variations.
I try my best to photograph the skeins as accurately as possible using a Nikon camera and natural light but please note that colours may appear different due to variations in monitor/screen settings.
