{rig : a ridge, a higher part; the space between furrows on ploughed land}

Rig is a plump, squishy merino/nylon blend that has a lovely twist, for amazing stitch definition. With 20% nylon, it is perfect for socks but it also knits up into a lovely fabric for shawls and scarves and lightweight sweaters too. Lovely to work with and lovely to wear...

The Rig collections are worked as pairs of shades - a semi-solid or tonal shade has a coordinating variegated or speckled partner but they also work in trios with a complimentary shade to add 'pop', or as fades and marls for all your favourite patterns.

Our dye techniques means that each skein is unique and most colourways are 'one of a kind' (so if you see something that steals your heart we'd recommend grabbing it while you can.) 

Although Rig is a superwash fibre, we advise 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.
