Notes on hand-dyed yarn

*Although the images are taken as close to the real thing as possible, the appearance may differ depending on the computer, smartphone, etc. in use.
✳ We have several in stock, but each one is slightly different. The impression may change depending on how the skein is tied, but please understand that it is unique to hand dyeing.
It's a difference that doesn't feel uncomfortable when connected.
✳Price is per skein.

✳The details of the thread at the bottom of the page are for all the bases we handle, so please refer to the section on the base thread in the title. Please note that we do not accept orders for different bases.

It will be a hand-dyed one-of-a-kind item.

Inspiration for "Old French Air" from Tchaikovsky's Children's Album. A simple but short song with an impressive Tchaikovsky clause. It seems that there are many songs that children cannot forget.
By layering colors many times, I wanted to express how something with a shape becomes a deeper color over time.

Ultra-fine yarn (2/16Nm) of British blue face Leicester wool, soft and ideal for shawls and wear.
As a guide, you can knit 2 to 3 skeins for a long-sleeved pullover (women's M size), and 4 skeins for women's L size and men's size.
Even one skein can be used to knit a shawl depending on the pattern. Make the most of the thinness by arranging it or combining it with mohair.
