Trillium - Fingering Weight Yarn,
Sets of 5 Hand Dyed Mini Skeins,Gradient & Semi-Solid Colours.
The perfect mohair blend fingering/sock yarn. Silky soft with minimal halo this will work up into wonderful garments you'll look forward to wrapping around you come autumn's crisp and winter's snowy days.
Perfect for a wide variety of projects; enjoy knitting this up into scarves, hats and lacy shawls.
These skeins were spun using the fine fleeces from our young adults angora goats. Their fleeces were blended with fine wool (Charollais cross Dorset) for added memory to help your garments keep their shape.
We carefully chose these hand-dyed mini skeins to match the different themes.
What about knitting them into a lacy shawl or scarf with smooth colour transitions? These mini-skeins could be also used to add contrasts to any fingering-sock weight yarn (like our Prairie Crocus or Trillium yarns).
The possibilities are endless!

More about our dyeing process
We carefully hand dyed (kettle dye) some of our skeins in small batches using professional acid dyes. They were rinsed (until the water runs clear) and washed using Kookaburra Delicate ( a delicate wool wash with unique blend of Tea Tree Oil and Lavender Oil) .
The colours are rich, vibrant and will be long lasting.
To minimize our environmental impact during the whole dyeing process, ( and when season permits it of course), we use water collected in our rain barrel instead of our well's water.
Each skein is unique (even dyed together). Some skeins have more or less of each of the colours and some may be slightly uneven coloring due to the kettle dyeing process. This makes them special, one of a kind.
- Hand wash gently in cool water with a wool wash of your choice . Lay flat to dry.
- Colours MAY bleed slightly on the first few washes (though we take care to ensure no colours bleed on the final rinse). This is not abnormal and can be due to differences in water chemistry. Please use caution and hand wash in cool water your finished item separately or with similar coloured items .
