Shanty - Kelpie

Regular price $38.00

Tax included.

Think those weird ol' sunsets that reflect on water, with a Portuguese Man o'War thrown in the mix. This colour is a hotchpotch of blues, browns and greys. These skeins have lots of layers - each is different. We strongly recommend alternating if you desire a more even result.

This colour reads mid- greyish in dull light, but the underlying tones become more apparent in natural light!

Kelpie is a fabulous yarn - soft superwash merino - which takes dye like a dream, combined with natural linen - which doesn't take dye at all! The result is a tweedy blended look, adding depth and interest to any colour.
This yarn is great for garments and accessories, and showcasing cables!

All skeins in this listing are from the same batch. Some colourways have many dye processes, which means each skein is a little different! I strongly recommend alternating skeins when knitting a larger item.
