This yarn kit includes all the yarn required to knit the innovative Steek hat. Steek is knitted with Byre, a Fingering (4 Ply) weight yarn which is spun from 100% British wool at a nearby mill in Yorkshire. Byre is a very special blend of Jacob and Shetland fleeces spun exclusively for Susan Crawford Vintage, which creates a beautifully soft, airy, tonal, naturally grey yarn. This natural shade is called Dry Stone Wall and is one of the shades used in Steek.
In addition this stunning yarn has been hand dyed by Susan and her team in four earthy shades to create the hues needed for this intriguing project.
These stunning hand dyed yarns have been hand dyed by Susan here on the farm; each shade inspired by the landscape, the buildings, the animals and the birds of the North West of England countryside. They have then been wound into 25g skeins to provide each kit with the correct amount of yarn.
This kit offer a considerable saving on buying the yarn individually. Your kit contains 5 25g skeins of Byre, fingering (4 Ply) weight yarn, a wonderful blend of Jacobs, white Shetland and black Shetland fleeces; 1 skein shows Byre in its beautiful undyed natural soft grey, with 4 more hand dyed skeins, one each of Loam, Gate Post, Clay and Rusty Tractor.
Please note this kit does not include the pattern. This can be purchased separately or is available in the book, Evolution.
