Meadowyarn - miniCooms | DK
Hand dyed in a range of tonal, variegated and speckled shades. Each bundle contains 5 mini-skeins of this lovely DK weight super wash Merino. Each skein is 20g/45 metres so the bundle is equivalent to 1 x 100g/225m skein.
We kettle dye Cooms in small batches using a combination of immersion and hand-painting to give Cooms yarn subtle areas of variegation that will 'pool' and 'flash' depending on gauge. 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 Cooms is a superwash fibre, we recommend hand washing in cool water to preserve the vibrancy of the dye.
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.
