Botanically inspired, hand dyed wool colourway: Echeveria Pollux



Hand-dyed in Yorkshire, England.

I used to run a house plant business, therefore all my hand dyed yarn is inspired by my favourite plants, hence their unusual names. 

Please note that as this is a hand-dyed yarn, each skein is unique. We recommend striping alternate skeins when using more than one in order to achieve a more natural gradation. 


Care: Wash by hand using a wool wash and lay flat to dry. 



Please note, these skeins are dyed to order, so there may be a delay of

 2 weeks  before your order dispatches. Please let me know if you would like a sweater quantity of any of these skeins, and I can offer 15% over 3 skeins of the same colour. To redeem this discount please use code : SQ
