“Litton Welldressing” pays tribute to the Derbyshire tradition of Welldressings, where beautiful pictures are created from petals and foilage set into clay. “Litton Welldressing” features shades of purples, indigo blues, and deep pinks with flashes of grey. This yak/silk/merino 4-ply blend has to be my favourite yarn to work with. The high twist nature of the yarn gives a good stitch definition and the silk content gives the final garment a perfect drape with a subtle sheen.
This colourway is created using a dye technique which randomly places the colours on the skein – so is less prone to pooling than other hand dyed yarns.
Hand wash only, and dry flat.
