{currel - east anglian origin - a small stream}

We are in love with this yarn! Spun from the fleece of the Peruvian Highland sheep (a cross between the Merino and Corriedale breeds) this sport weight yarn is bouncy with a lovely twist and has proper 'bite'. It's a real woolly wool, our favourite sort. Not superwash treated, it will wash and wear beautifully for many years if treated with care and it is a dream to dye. Our range of ~core~ shades are subtle and slightly muted with great tonal variation and depth... perfect for stranded colour work. We think this is the perfect sweater yarn but will also make gorgeous hats, mitts, shawls and wraps.

We kettle dye Currel in small batches using a variety of techniques to develop layered tonal and semi-solid shades. 

Currel is spun from fibre that has not been superwash treated and should be hand washed 'cold' to prevent felting/fulling and to preserve the vibrancy of the dye.

Even within a dye batch (usually four skeins), each skein is unique and as with all small batch, hand dyed yarn that doesn't have dye lots, we recommend knitting alternate rows from two skeins when working on larger projects to avoid noticeable changes between skeins and avoid tonal pooling.

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 cold water and pre-washing your yarn separately if you are intending to mix light and dark shades in a single garment/project.
