This listing is for a 100g skein of hand dyed DK weight yarn on my Happy Owl base. Happy Owl is a fantastic 100% superwash British Bluefaced Leicester which is super soft and gobbles up the dye and makes for very vibrantly coloured yarns. This makes a versatile base for any other items which call for this weight of yarn, and is a pleasure to knit or crochet.

The Knit-Tea Retreat Special Colourway 2018 was dyed for our first knitting retreat. Each attendee received a skein in their goody bag and I dyed extra in case anyone needed a second skein for a larger project. These few skeins are all that is left, and I am unlikely to repeat this colourway.

This yarn is hand dyed with professional grade acid dyes and then rinsed after the dyeing process. However, please hand wash to preserve the colour and please be aware that there may be a small amount of dye bleeding out in the first wash (although this is unusual because I am very thorough with my rinsing). Drying in direct sunlight can also fade the colour over time, so where possible, please avoid.

Each skein is 100g and has 225m/246yards.

Please bear in mind that I dye skeins in small batches through kettle dyeing and hand painting. This leads to small variations even between skeins in the same dye lot so if you have a large project in mind, please contact me so that I can make sure you get skeins as closely matching as possible or I can custom dye a specific quantity up for you. Also please bear in mind that whilst every effort is made to ensure the photograph accurately reflects the yarn colour monitors do vary.
