Greywacke – Woollen Spun DK

Category:

Greywacke – a colour inspired by the rocky outcrops of greywacke stone that are a feature of the farm where the sheep live, and of the whole Rough Ridge area that forms foothills around the Maniototo plain in Central Otago.

Hand dyed in lots of approx. 1kg. A lightweight yet robust woollen spun DK yarn that is perfect for general knitting and crochet of a wide variety of garments, and very well suited to stranded colourwork (fairisle). The three plys make this a nice rounded yarn that has good stitch definition. Makes superb shawls that block beautifully when knitted on needles up to 5mm.
Please ensure that you purchase enough to complete your project as an additional yarn in the same batch may not be available at a later date.
