Inky - darkest purple plum, like squid ink in the deep ocean.


70% merino, 20% yak, 10%nylon

4 ply weight.

Each skein is 100g in weight & contains 400m (437yds) of yarn.


A soft, squishy yarn, perfect for socks, but equally as good for shawls or sweater. The yak gives this a richness of colour & adds warmth for the wearer.

This is a superwash yarn, so can go on a cool wool wash machine cycle, but I do always advise hand washing to preserve the colours.


Each skein is hand dyed in my home in North Wales. We are smoke free, but we do have a dog, although he's not generally allowed to play with the yarn! I use professional acid dyes which are fixed and thoroughly rinsed. Please note though that some colour bleed may occur on the first wash, especially with darker colours.


All skeins are dyed in small batches and I cannot guarantee the colour will be exactly from batch to batch. Please purchase enough to finish your project. If there is not sufficient quantity listed please get in touch. Most of my colourways are repeatable & can be dyed for you in a larger batch should you require it. It is advisable to alternated skeins within a project to minimise any differences between skeins, even from the same batch.


I try my best to get colours accurate but please do allow a little leeway for monitor and screen differences.
