100 g Poll Dorset - Miraval

21,00 €

100 g plant 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 and bags of versatility.

Miraval is hand dyed with weld and indigo, just as it could have been for the famous troubadour Raimon de Miraval in the 12th century in our sunny land of Oc. Although indigo was not grown locally it was available through trading with Africa and the Orient.

100 g is approximately 350m, i.e. 3.53 oz is approximately 382 yards.

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

Machine wash - cold wool cycle or hand wash in warm water, this is the type of wool that gets even better with age.
