A sweet and moody, semi-solid purple named after the blackberry wine my Grandpa used to make.

The choice of base is:
80/20 SW Merino/Nylon Sock
- Grown and spun in New Zealand, this yarn is 80% Merino, 20% Nylon and is machine washable. This yarn knits beautifully and wears really well. Suitable for socks, shawls and baby knits where you want a little more wearability. With approximately 357m or 390 yards per 100g, one skein is enough to knit a pair of men's socks.
4Ply SW Merino
- This gorgeous, smooth, 100% merino yarn was grown and spun in New Zealand. Ideal for shawls and baby knits where softness and drape are important. With approximately 357m or 390 yards per 100g, one skein is enough for most baby items and 2 skeins will get you an awesome shawl.
DK (8Ply) SW Wool
- A gorgeous worsted spun yarn with awesome drape and handle. It blocks really well and holds it's form. Grown and spun in New Zealand, this yarn is 100% wool and is machine washable. With approximately 217m or 237 yards per 100g, one skein is enough to knit an adult sized beanie.
10Ply SW Wool
- A beautiful, plump, squishy 100% wool yarn. Fully machine washable, grown and spun here in New Zealand. With approximately 176m or 192 yards per 100g, one skein is enough to give you a quick knit hat and 800g is plenty for a large men's jumper.
Each skein of yarn is dyed to a specific recipe. Whilst every care is taken to ensure consistency across a colour/colourway some variation can occur.
The yarn is washed and rinsed until the water runs clear. A slight colour bleed may still occur on the first wash. A cool delicate/woolen wash cycle is recommended.
