Meadowyarn - Winn | Chunky
Chunky baby Alpaca with a lovely twist and a soft halo. Perfect for quick accessories!
We kettle dye Winn in small batches using a combination of immersion and hand-painting to give Winn yarn subtle areas of variegation that will 'pool' and 'flash' depending on gauge. Each skein is unique and most colourways are 'one of a kind' (so if you see something that steals your heart grab it while you can!)
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 non-hazardous, non-chrome, low impact, heavy metal-free acid dyes. We 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.
