Tempest is a variegated combination of purple and crimson colours with splashes of black all combining to create this gorgeous colourway. 

This Superwash 100% Australian Merino yarn is a very versatile yarn, and can be used for shawls, wraps, mittens and jumpers. Washable in cold water on a very gentle cycle, it is also suitable for children's and baby clothes.

This plump buoyant yarn takes up the dye well to produce deep, vibrant colours. These yarns are worsted spun to produce a yarn that is strong with a silky feel. Very soft and springy, the 4 plies and twist provide extra robustness.

Care for your yarn

This 100% Merino yarn is superwash and can be gently machine washed on a cool gentle cycle but most knitters will hand wash their creations.

 

When using more than one hank I recommend alternating hanks

This is a hand dyed item and may vary from hank to hank.
