This luxury, plush yarn is a blend of 50% fine Merino and 50% pure Mulberry Silk.  Colours really 'pop' on this base and naturally it is unbelievably soft and smooth.

We are in awe of Heather's small-batch, hand-dyed yarn from her little studio in Lower Hutt, Aotearoa/New Zealand. Everything, from sourcing the yarn to shipping, is done with love and care by hand. The nature of hand-dyed yarn is that no two skeins are exactly the same, creating beautifully nuanced colourways. 

Heather sources the finest quality, fully traceable and mulesing-free, ethically, sustainably farmed yarns from New Zealand and abroad.  

She uses dyes that are made in Australia and New Zealand.  They are acid dyes that are used for dyeing protein-based fibre (such as wool and silk), taking every care to use only the quantities necessary to create her colourways. This means that the dyepot is fully exhausted when the dyeing is complete - that is, the water is clear, so she can reuse the same water for the next batch - so clever!
