A superwash merino singles base that is soft as a cloud and light as air. We're using Tilth to knit beautiful shawls and wraps...
We kettle dye Tilth in small batches using a combination of kettle dyeing for semi-solid and tonal shades and low-immersion and hand-painting for variegated shades that will 'pool' and 'flash' depending on gauge. Each skein is unique and aside from the 'core' shades most colourways are 'one of a kind' (so if you see something that steals your heart grab it while you can!)
Although Tilth is a superwash fibre, 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.
