{pightle - east anglian origin; a small enclosed grass field near to the homestead}

Due to delays in production caused by various worldwide lockdown situations we were temporarily dyeing a slightly different yarn base for Pightle. It has the same meterage (400m per 100g skein), the same fibre content (100% superwash merino wool), has the same twist, and is gorgeously squishy and soft (it's a bit softer than our usual base, in fact). We like it just as much and it is perfectly interchangeable with 'regular pightle'. We've marked shades dyed on the alternative base with an asterisk * so that you can see exactly which base you'll be getting when you order as they do feel slightly different.

Pightle is a smooth, soft, superwash merino yarn with medium twist that takes colour beautifully and allows us to explore all the dye techniques we love. 

A 'go-to' yarn at 400m per 100g skein, it is perfect for sweaters, cardigans, shawls and accessories. The merino, sourced sustainably in South America and guaranteed mulesing-free, has been superwash treated for ease of care.

This yarn qualifies for our 'sweater quantity' discount ~ Buy 6 full size, full price skeins of meadowyarn hand-dyed yarn and get 15% OFF ~ Discount applied automatically ~ Mix-and-match across yarn bases ~ Does not apply to mini-skeins or 'sale' yarn ~ May not be used in conjunction with any other discount code. 

We kettle dye Pightle 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' or 'flash' depending on gauge. Each skein is unique and aside from the ~core~ and ~flash~ shades colourways are not always repeatable (so if you see something that steals your heart grab it while you can!)

Although Pightle 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 acid dyes with good light and wash fastness and 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.
