Tideswell Welldressing (silk/yak/merino)

“Tideswell Welldressing” pays tribute to the Derbyshire tradition of Welldressings, where beautiful pictures are created from petals and foilage set into clay. “Tideswell Welldressing” features a myriad of greens and blues 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.
