100 g Poll Dorset - Ermengard

19,00 €

100 g woad dyed Organic Poll Dorset, from an organically certified flock raised in France, combed and spun to a fine 4/14 for use as 4-ply fingering.

Springy and strong, with a light lustre, good stitch definition and bags of versatility.

Ermengard is hand dyed with weld and woad, just as it could have been for the famous Ermengard of Narbonne in the 12th century in our sunny land of Oc. The latest dye lot has a smidgen of abrash, I think in modern parlance that is called semi-solid, a subtle blend of yellows, turquoises and greens.

100 g is approximately 350m, i.e. 3.53 oz is approximately 380 yards.

We recommend that you use 2.25 - 3.75 mm (US 1 -5) knitting needles depending on the project undertaken.

Machine wash either cold or handwash at 30ºC, wash dark colours separately for a while. This wool is not superwash however it does not felt too easily.
