100 g Poll Dorset - Rondel

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.

Rondel is hand dyed with cochineal and indigo, such a combination would have been rare in medieval times because the precious indigo would only have been available to those with heavy purses.

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.

Hand wash in warm water, wash dark colours separately for a while, this is the type of wool that gets even better with age.
