{pronounced smee; old English; smooth, level land; marshland; plain}

Smeeth is a non-superwash aran-weight yarn that has a relaxed twist comprising 4-plys and a lovely bounce when knitted. The Corriedale fleece is sourced from South America and spun in Yorkshire before we dye it in Suffolk. It knits up quickly into a lovely fabric and is soft enough for most wool lovers to wear next to the skin.

We've dyed Smeeth in a range of soft neutrals and semi-solid/tonal pastel and rich jewel shades, perfect for colourwork sweaters and modern accessories.

We kettle dye Smeeth in small batches and each skein is unique. 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.

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.
