Orders are shipping daily. Because of the global pandemic, delivery times are likely to be longer than usual and may be somewhat unpredictable. Although most items arrive remarkably promptly considering the circumstances, please do not contact me to ask where your order is until two weeks have elapsed (UK) or one month (international). Prior to that, please use the tracking information. I have made signed-for delivery compulsory on a temporary basis until postal services are managing better or folk become used to slightly longer waits. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.

Blackbirds build their nests in late Winter. The female lays about four blue/green eggs with brown speckles, and incubates them for a fortnight. The chicks take a further two weeks to fledge, and the parents will continue to feed them for a few weeks after they leave the nest.

It is a superwash treated 4ply sock weight yarn with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth, 25% nylon for strength and durability. Around 420 metres per 100g skein. Suitable for 2-3mm needles.

This yarn is presented as a skein. If you would like it caked then this adds 24h to the dispatch time and costs £2. You can purchase this service here:
