The river runs deep and cold, from high mountain, by king’s palaces, over rocks, waterfalls and rapids until it finally meets the sea. This deep blue shade with just a hint of teal is one I cannot wait to see yarncrafted up into lots of projects - perfect on its own or as a base for a lighter speckled colour, ‘River’ is one you’ll come back to again and again.

- 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.
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.
