YAMA DK Luxe
Yama Yarns hand dyed by Madeleine
DK Luxe knits up into a cosy fabric that softens as you handle it. While the 60% merino content is superwash, the alpaca and kid mohair fibres are feltable - making it very suitable for colourwork.

I recommend hand washing garments in coldl water. Note that the mohair and alpaca fibres are feltable, do not agitate when washing. Soak in a wool wash and rinse in clean water with a drop of essential oil. Roll in a towel to get the water out and dry flat.
NOTE: when using high contrast yarn in one project where the one colour is very light and the other very dark, soak and rinse the dark colour prior to knitting/crocheting to get rid of any excess dye. Wash the garment in cold water.
Note: I try to present yarn colour as true as possible but due to variations in device screen displays and light conditions during photography, the actual yarn colour may vary slightly from the colour that you perceive on your screen. Dye batches of the same colourways varies. Please note that I cannot offer refunds or exchanges on yarn colour discrepancies.
