Troutie Troutie - Mini Skein on Choufunga Sock

Regular price £4.00

Colourway: Troutie Troutie


This colourway was first introduced in my 2019 Scottish Myth & Folklore Advent Set as Day 17.

The inspiration for this colourway comes from the story ‘Gold-Tree and Silver-Tree’ which I read in Scottish Folk Tales, Lomond Books.  Like the tale of Snow White and its magic mirror, this is a tale of vanity and jealousy. In this tale however, the evil step-mother Queen consults a trout in a nearby well for confirmation of her supreme beauty.

 

This listing is for a single mini skein. Perfect for blankets, dolls, other small projects, adding a pop of colour to a larger piece or just sampling a colourway. Choose your mini skein size from the options in stock.

 

20g mini skein is about 93 yards / 85 meters.

10g mini skein is about 46 yards / 42 meters.

5g mini skein is about 23 yards / 21 meters.

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'!
