Black Elephant Merino Singles are hand-dyed by Petra just across the Pennines from us in Sheffield. A superwash merino single this wonderful yarn takes dye beautifully. Inspired by everyday life, architecture, paintings, music and her current mood, Petra's colours are breathtaking!
As a fingering weight knitting yarn, Merino Singles are ideal for knitting shawls, why not cast on Andrea Mowry's Find Your Fade or Stephen West's Marled Fade Triangle.
As with all hand-dyed yarn, each skein is unique. If you are planning a large knitting project, it is best to alternate skeins to ensure an even appearance of the colour.
