Red Moss - Mini Skein on Choufunga Sock

Regular price £1.25

Colourway: Red Moss


This colourway was first introduced in my 2019 Scottish Myth & Folklore Advent Set as Day 16.

Red Moss is featured in many tales for its healing powers and in fact was widely used for such in real life. This particular inspiration came from ‘Princess of Land-under-Waves’ in Wonder Tales From Scottish Myth and Legend by Donald A. Mackenzie, Forgotten Books. It is a tale that includes a quest and one of many Scottish tales that feature the mythological Irish giant Finn McCool/Fionn mac Cumhaill and his band of Feans/Fianna. Finn is believed to be responsible for many of the geological features of both Scotland and Ireland.

Skeins are hand dyed on 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. Suitable for hand or machine knitting.

All wool is hand dyed in single or small batches then washed and dried ready to be knit up into your own unique creation.
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.

 

Ever had a wash load turn pink because of one tiny red sock? Although all wool has been washed thorougly after dyeing, it is advisable to wash your creations seperatly the first time, in case any residual dye remains. The vibrance 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'!
