Corriedale is an untreated, 100 % Corriedale base plant dyed by Bestiarium yarn. It has a lovely twist and bounce, and is soft enough for next to skin garments like sweaters and shawls. The bounce gives this yarn a great stitch definition, and it's a dream for cables and textured stitches! It blooms beautifully after a first wash, leaving even simple stockinette looking even and smooth. Corriedale wool is a great fibre for allround purposes, and knit at a tighter gauge, this yarn will also lend itself very well to socks and mittens.

All colours are dyed here in my forest studio, using organic materials such as plants, leaves, roots and insects. Each skein is unique and colours are non-repeatable so please make sure to get enough for the project you have in mind! Alternating skeins is always recommended with hand dyed yarns to avoid a clear line when changing skeins. Colours may bleed slightly, and shades dyed with indigo may turn your fingers lightly blue when you work with them, in a natural process called crocking.
