Deep in the forests of Scotland, beneath the shadow of the imposing mountains, lie a herd of red deer grazing in the misty glen. Their russet-red fur is the inspiration for ‘Herla’; this stunning repeatable colourway is subtly variegated with glowing chestnut and rust tones, making it the perfect autumn colour.

Please note that the merino singles is an old version of this colourway and is therefore more orange than the DK.

  • Please Note

    All yarn is hand dyed in a smoke-free, cat-friendly environment. (I don’t let him play with the yarn, though he’d love to!)
    Please wind into a ball or cake before use. 
    While every effort is made to colour match photos, please be aware that colours may vary between monitors.
    As these skeins are hand dyed, we recommend alternating them through a larger project to avoid an obvious change when a new skein is used. A small amount of dye run is to be expected in the first wash; please wash on its own for the first time.

  • Washing Advice

    With all our yarn bases, we recommend hand washing cold and laying flat to dry. We recommend using a small amount of wool wash, find our favourite here

    A very small amount of dye run is possible, though unlikely, especially with very rich, dark or bright colours, so we do recommend washing on it's own the first time.
