Washing machines: Modern machines with delicate programme at 20degC using a wool delicate detergent. Can be spun at 400rpm but it is always advisable to check first by washing a tension square and then checking the final dry size.

    I purchased these off of another vendor’s website. They are AMAZING. So soft and warm, and so smooth to crochet. This will be the main yarn I use from now on!

    As a designer I use many Yarns but this is my favourite DK. The colours mix and match brilliantly and the completed project is lovely to wear.

    The perfect yarn in every way. Brilliant for colourwork. The colours blend and contrast to enable one to have a variety of colour choices. I love designing using this as the end result is a piece of clothing that feels lovely next to the skin. The yarn is machine washable on a wool wash which is a bonus. I highly recommend the yarn for a luxurious wool at a reasonable price.
