Colourway name: Courage - September Yarn of the month Club
The word for September is Courage. The colourway was inspired after watching all the amazing Olympic and Para-Olympic athletes striving for those gold medals. It reminded me how important it is to find the courage in our own lives everyday. The courage to trust our own intuition and creativity and belive that we are good enough to make our dreams come true.
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.
Please contact me if you need larger quantities for a specific project like a garment so that I can dye all skeins together to minimise colour differences between the skeins.
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.
All items are produced in a Smoke-free / Pet-free environment .
