This soft, springy extra fine Merino yarn knits into a beautiful fabric and is perfect for garments and accessories. Its twist gives great stitch definition...

We've listed this as a worsted weight yarn as it sits at the 'heavy end' of the DK scale but it can work very well for many patterns calling for DK weight yarn as well. As usual, we recommend you knit a tension square to check your gauge before embarking on a project.

We kettle dye Fell in small batches using a variety of techniques to develop layered tonal shades and complex variegated effects. Each skein is unique and most colourways are 'one of a kind' (so if you see something that steals your heart grab it while you can!)

Although Fell is superwash merino, we recommend hand washing in cool water to preserve the vibrancy of the dye.

As with all small batch, hand dyed yarn that doesn't have dye lots, we also recommend knitting alternate rows from two skeins when working on larger projects to avoid noticeable changes between skeins.

We use professional non-hazardous, non-chrome, low impact, heavy metal-free acid dyes. We do our best to exhaust every dye bath and to reuse water wherever possible to reduce any further environmental impact. Occasionally a small amount of 'loose' dye may remain in the yarn after rinsing (most likely with deeply saturated shades) and we always recommend hand washing in very cool water and pre-washing your yarn separately if you are intending to mix light and dark shades in a single garment/project.
