We currently have 7 in stock.

This is a one of a kind (OOAK) dyelot of this colourway - with more orange and brown than usual.

Four Two Two Four was created for the 2018 Super Summer Knitogether retreat goody bag - it features layers of mint green, speckled with spearmint, rusted orange and a hint of warm brown. It's named for the 4224 miles between my house on the Sussex coast of England and the Scarritt Bennett Center, in Nashville TN, where the retreat is held.

Singles are a fingering weight single ply yarn from 100% Superwash Merino wool. The single ply construction gives it a wonderful sheen, takes colour fabulously and it has a soft, almost silky handle. Singles would be perfect for small accessories or larger projects like shawls or stoles. I wouldn't recommend it for socks or items that take a lot of wear or abrasion.

Fingering weight, 366m / 400yds.

Superwash wool is machine washable - I recommend using a wool/delicates cycle, or a 30 degree wash and laying flat to dry. I recommend washing items separately or hand washing for the first few washes as minimal colour bleeding may occur.

A note about my yarn hand dyed yarn:

Unless otherwise noted, all my colourways are repeatable, however no two skeins are identical.

All yarn is from a smoke-free, cat friendly environment (although the cats are not allowed to play in the yarn!).
