Telling Yarns - Steadfast
- Unit Price
A commission spin by the wonderful John Arbon Textiles Mill in Devon. This yarn was designed to bring together drape, memory, lustre and bounce, with added depth and saturation of colour from the heathering of dark Zwartbles fibres, then topped off with a gentle halo . Worsted spun for a smooth and strong yarn, this custom blend is a lovely choice for the your next knitting project.

Please wash your knits in cool water, with mild soap and please do not let them sit fully submerged without movement for more than 5 mins if wet blocking. For colourwork projects, it's recommended to first knit a swatch using all the colours, then wash and block to make sure there is no colour bleed.
