DT Craft & Design "Pipit" [13% Zwartbles 20% Blueface Leicester 67% Exmoor Blueface (4 ply)]

Pipit

We're very excited to show you our exclusive new yarns: not one but three lovely new blends! Debbie designed these yarns last year and has been working with a UK spinner to bring them into being.

All three yarns are a blend of beautiful fibres from British sheep and are a little unusual for us in that they are marls rather than being pure white. Debbie has specifically designed them to allow you to create interesting dyeing effects by combining white plies with naturally coloured plies. (And the natural colours are so pretty they're equally nice undyed!).

Peregrine is the darkest of the three blends, a subtle combination of one dark, one mid-tone and one white ply.

Curlew is the mid-shade, being one dark and two white plies.

Pipit is the third and lightest blend with one mid-tone and two white plies.

And the fibres? Here's where it gets really interesting! The yarns are a combination of British Zwartbles, Bluefaced Leicester and Exmoor Blueface. The three plies make for a lovely rounded 4ply yarn that is soft enough for socks but durable too.

Members of our Super Sock Medley Club have already been treated to a sneak preview of these yarns as Pipit was the base yarn Debbie used for the February club skein (see below). For more details of Debbie's Sock and Fibre clubs click here
