Dark Tyrian red-purple hand-dyed Bluefaced Leicester/Gotland yarn
Scylfing Aran is a characterful yarn with a beautifully soft hand, spun from a 75/25 blend of the finest British Bluefaced Leicester and Gotland wool, and has been custom-spun for us by Laxtons in Yorkshire. It has a 3-ply construction, medium spin, and is a good all-round, general purpose Aran weight yarn. The rough, ‘rustic’ blend of grey Gotland with the creamy Bluefaced Leicester gives the yarn a heathered look, and lends itself to great depth of colour. We’re very proud of Scylfing here at Triskelion!
Each 100 gram hank is approximately 170 metres of yarn. We would recommend a hand-wash with gentle detergent in warm water in order 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.
