This is a very weird grey. It's sort of dark charcoal on the fuzzy bits, and dark teal on the silk binder thread. It was jolly hard work, and I won't be able to do it again!
**This is a very saturated colourway. I have washed it and the rinse water is clear. However, as water and washing method may vary, if you're planning on using with a lighter colour, I would recommend knitting a small test swatch with all the colours you're using, and wash and block in the usual way. Cold water and a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid is a good bet!
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.
Fibre content: 70% mohair/ 30% silk (NOT superwash)
Yardage: 420 metres / 460 yards
Recommended knitting needle size: 2.25 – 4.00 mm for garments and accessories
Wash carefully by hand in cool water with a few drops of clear unscented dish washing liquid (if needed). Dry flat in shade. Yarn may shed initially, as with most mohair blends.
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!
