{cooms - the high ridges in muddy tracks that rise between wheel ruts}

Cooms is a springy, bouncy yarn constructed from 3 plys of superwash merino. 3ply yarn is lovely and 'round' and knits into a fabric with great stitch definition, so is perfect for cables and lace patterns - but even a swathe of plain stocking stitch will have beautiful texture and sharp definition.

We love sport weight yarn – which sits midway between fingering/4ply and DK weight – for pullovers, cardigans, and accessories; it's relatively quick to knit, and the fabric it creates is warm but not too bulky. The perfect weight for the 'between' seasons, whether under a winter coat, or over a t-shirt.

We've dyed cooms | sport in our favourite ~core~ semi-solid and ~fluid~ variegated shades, making it the perfect choice for colourwork, fades, and stripes in endless combinations.

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, limited edition collections, dyed-to-order,  or 'sale' yarn ~ May not be used in conjunction with any other discount code.

We dye Cooms 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. Even within a dye batch, each skein is unique as a result of our dyeing techniques.

Although Cooms 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 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.
