This fabulous 'zebra' yarn is constructed from two strands of superwash merino yarn. One is pre-dyed to fade from natural white through grey to black and back again and the other is natural white. Plied with a lovely twist, when dyed with our usual techniques it resembles handspun yarn. The merino is wonderfully soft and the colours saturated and vibrant. 

We dye Windle in small batches using a variety of techniques to develop layered tonal shades and complex variegated effects. We usually dye batches of 3 skeins but even within a dye batch, each skein is unique.

Although Windle 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 with semi-solid shades and unwanted pooling or flashing with variegated shades.

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.
