Dark Tyrian red-purple hand-dyed Corriedale yarn
A soft, springy and glossy Corriedale 4-ply/fingering weight yarn. It’s a high-twist yarn, so is suitable for socks and great for cables and textured knitting.
Corriedale is a cross between merino and Lincoln Longwool, and combines their softness and depth of colour. It’s soft, hard-wearing, very springy and yet able to be worn next-to-skin. Each 100 gram skein of Cywyn Worsted is approximately 400 metres of yarn. The Cywyn base is Falklands Corriedale, spun in Yorkshire.
Cywyn isn’t superwash treated, so it needs a hand-wash with gentle detergent in tepid to warm water in order to prevent felting and to keep the colours looking their best.
The yarn has been hand-dyed in a smoke-free and pet-friendly home, but no pets have had access to the fibre. Please be aware that, while we make every attempt to provide you with accurate photographs, the colours in them may vary from monitor to monitor.
