{hither - old english; the place where you are}

Hither is a high twist, superwash merino/nylon blend that produces a hard-wearing fabric with great stitch definition and is perfect not just for socks but shawls, accessories, and lightweight garments...

With 425m per 100g skein there is ample for a large adult pair of socks. This base takes dye beautifully, from the softest pastels to deep, dark tonal colours, and zingy, vivid, saturated shades. (Note: we've launched Hither as one of our regular yarns using a slightly different base to that used for Hither as part of the #yarnfictions collections. This has more nylon and more yardage...)

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,  or 'sale' yarn ~ May not be used in conjunction with any other discount code. 

We dye Hither 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 Hither 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.
