Hand dyed in 20 rich semi solid shades, this yarn is perfect for cosy sweaters and accessories.

The palette has been specially designed to work well for colourwork and the semi solid shades would also look great knitted in squishy cable patterns.

Fibre content: 60% Highland Wool, 40% Superfine Alpaca 65 metres (75 yards) per 50g skein

Recommended needle sizes: 4.5mm - 6mm (US 7-10)

Tarma Aran knits up as a slightly thicker Aran weight, on 5.5mm (US9) needles you can expect a tension of 16 sts and 22 rows to 10cm after blocking. Rib can be knitted on 4mm (US6) - 4.5mm (US7)needles.

Soak in cool water and block on a towel, due to the alpaca content the garments do take a while to dry, so block in a warm place if possible. Do not use leave in wool washes for this yarn as this may encourage the dye to run, a delicate fabric wash is the best option.

Since the skeins are hand dyed they must be alternated every few rows when knitting a larger item.
