{eynd : an old east anglian word used to refer to soft sea mist or 'water-smoke'}

This blend of superwash merino and natural bamboo is plied with a lovely medium twist. It has a slight halo and a lovely sheen and it is perfect on its own for delicate lace shawls but can be held with bray | lace, our mohair/silk blend, to create a gloriously squishy fabric or alongside any of our fingering weight yarns to add textural interest and a little extra weight...

Natural bamboo is essentially bamboo used in its raw form without being processed into a 'viscose' fibre, a process that is incredibly water/energy-intensive. While bamboo is a super fast-growing crop, making it very sustainable, the process of turning it into a viscose fibre is not so we've avoided bamboo yarns to date. This 'raw' bamboo has the gorgeous sheen and lustre of bamboo viscose without the sustainability issues.

We dye Eynd 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 Eynd 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.
