This colourway was first introduced in my 2019 Scottish Myth & Folklore Advent Set as Day 11.
Mention of the Goona can be found in ‘Exiles from Fairyland’ in Wonder Tales From Scottish Myth and Legend by Donald A. Mackenzie, Forgotten Books. Kind and gentle, the Goona in particular helps to keep cattle out of dangerous places when they are out in the countryside. Like in many similar tales and descriptions of Brownies, the Goona is bound to serve mankind without reward. If anyone should attempt to reward him, especially with clothes, he would be forced to leave and not return.
All wool is hand dyed in single or small batches then washed and dried ready to be knit up into your own unique creation.
1 x 100g hank of Choufunga: Superwash Merino sock weight wool – 75% merino wool and 25% nylon for hand or machine knitting. Beautifully soft merino with nylon for a bit of extra stretch and strength.
Each 100g hank is about 465 yards / 425 meters.
Suitable for machine washing but hand washing is preferable. Dry flat.
While I have tried to capture the colours as best I can, please be aware colours may vary from those shown here.
Due to the nature of hand dyeing, colour saturation and placement may vary between different skeins of the same colourway. If you are using more than one to skein to complete your project I recommend alternating between the skeins for the best overall colour matching.
Want the skein wound up and ready to knit? Add on my caking service to your order.
Ever had a wash load turn pink because of one tiny red sock? Although all wool has been washed thoroughly after dyeing, it is advisable to wash your creations separately the first time, in case any residual dye remains. The vibrancy of your wool will not be affected in the rare event that there is any run off. I don't expect the dyes to run, but I make mention out of caution as I would hate for my wool to be the 'red sock'!
