Troubadour is hand dyed with madder which would have grown abundantly in the sunny Provence of the 12th century when the troubadours were singing in the southern courts.
100 g is approximately 350 m, 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, this is the type of wool that gets even better with age.
