Knobbed Whelk - Hesperus

Regular price $38.00

Tax included.

Sounds harmless in a comical way. But no. 

Knobbed Whelk is a pale shell grey, with speckles in electric pink, blue, black, gold, green and khaki. Some skeins have lots of speckle action, some have a bit less! Alternating is strongly recommended. This batch is a little pinker than others!

These skeins are all from the same lot - due to the number of dye processes, they can all look quite different! For most even results, please alternate skeins :)

Hesperus is a fuzzy blend of kid mohair bound with silk - perfect for adding a bit of fluff to your projects.

Excellent on its own for light as air accessories, or as a carry-along yarn.

I try hard to take photos that accurately represent the colour of the yarn, but please note that screens all show colour a little differently. If you have questions about colours, please ask, and I will do my best to describe them for you!
