This was inspired by standing in a meadow of freshly cut grass and inhaling that wonderful scent.
Lysefjord Single base is very soft blend of merino and linen. It is single ply and has a slight halo from the linen fibres. It is perfect to use for shawls and garments or even childrens clothing. You can 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 South Africa and is from farms with high animal welfare that are museling free.
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 .
