Toadstool takes inspiration from the Fly Agaric mushroom of the same name. This particular base features cotton neps which are white against the red, much like the flecks on the top of a toadstool.
The 4ply Fingering Weight is 100g, 400m of 84% merino wool 16% cotton neps.
My yarn is hand-dyed using professional acid dyes. Due to the nature of hand-dyeing no two skeins will be alike however I do take evert effort to ensure colour ways are consistent. If you are looking for a greater quantity and want to ensure best chances of consistency please get in touch to arrange a custom order. I would recommend this if ordering quantities greater than 3.
I ensure each skein is washed after dyeing to ensure water runs clear, little dye running may remain however so I do recommend you take care when washing any finished objects. I recommend a gentle wool wash and cold water, do not rub the yarn aggressively as this may felt it unintentionally. Reshape finished objects whilst damp and lay flat.
My yarn is hand-washed with a gentle wool wash before shipping.
