Dirty Water Dyeworks – Mavis (+ Tussah Silk)
Stephanie at Dirty Water Dyeworks dyes all her yarns by hand and her love of colour is evident in every skein.
Mavis is a smooth and luxurious blend of finest Merino and Tussah silk with rich lustrous shimmer and an elegant drape. It can be washed in a gentle machine cycle although we recommend hand-washing for all our specialist yarns.
Each 100g skein is 380 yards and will knit up at 7-9 stitches to the inch on 2mm to 3mm needles.
