This might seem like an odd inspiration, but it was the effect of the “watercolour” filter on Instagram that gave me this idea. The yarn was very wet when I applied the dye to create an effect similar to painting with watercolours. Zoom in to see how prettily it has turned out. I don’t know quite how else to represent this than showing it next to the original photo!
It is superwash treated 4ply sock yarn with 75% bluefaced leicester wool for softness and warmth and 25% nylon for strength and durability. It is suitable for approximately 2-3mm needles. About 420 metres per 100g skein.
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:
