Duchess is a show stopper! Somehow, it's everything all at once: soft and strong, squishy and structured, cozy and light, unique and versatile. Duchess is perfect for all manner of garments and accessories in the DK to light worsted range, however truly shines as a shawl or sweater where its drape can adorn its wearer in a cozy embrace.
Hand-dyed with professional wash-fast acid dyes in my cat-friendly home studio. I take great care to set dye colours and rinse the yarns until no dye bleeds, however there may be some colour in your water at first wash due to differences in water properties. Please be aware that photo colours vary from screen to screen.
If your yarn creation requires more than one skein of the same yarn, it is very important to alternate skeins every row to blend; the beauty of hand-dyed yarn is that no two skeins are exactly the same, even when dyed in the same batch.
Hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry for best longevity.
