Hand-Dyed Yarn Skein: Layette


Layette is a mixture of taupe, bluish-gray, and warm creams, lightly speckled with burgundy and olive green.

I've dyed it on a gently twisted 3-ply fingering-weight base of 75% Corriedale wool and 25% nylon produced in the United Kingdom. This base makes a sturdy, hard-wearing sock, but is also soft enough to have a smooth texture with a bit of halo.

After dyeing, I rinse all yarns in cool water then soak them with Eucalan wool wash.

This is superwash yarn. Nevertheless, I recommend hand-washing in cool water and laying flat to dry.
