The Flower Power Fund is a fundraising campaign supporting Marie Curie UK, a wonderful charity which supports people living with a terminal illness.  The brainchild of @Sherlock_knits, a year long campaign of yarny loveliness brings a new colourway each month under the theme of '50 laps around the sun'. July is my turn.

These are skeins of Sunset colourway Merino Nylon yarn, my Acorn base. All my bases are named after parts of plants and trees.

 

It is 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon, Four ply 100g Skeins Approx. 425m

This is a very soft and versatile workhorse yarn. The nylon content makes it strong so it can be used for a huge range of items; socks, shawls, sweaters, hats and gloves.

It has been hand dyed by me in my studio with madder, weld and buckthorn to give the colours of a sunset, yellows, oranges to brown. 

The colours for this were inspired by this fabulous shot of the most beautiful sunset over water that we saw on holiday in Northumberland.

 

For every skein sold £3 will be donated to Marie Curie UK via the Flower Power Fund. 

 

I have tried to capture the colour of the yarn as accurately as possible. Please bear in mind that monitors vary and colours can be perceived differently.

Due to the nature of hand dyeing, the colours in each skein may be slightly different and no two skeins will be identical. As with any hand dyed wool, if using more than one skein then alternating skeins on every couple of rows will help to balance any slight differences.

I have rinsed the yarn until it runs clear. However, some dye may remain. A little may come off when knitting but this will quickly settle down.
I recommend you soak your finished item in a gentle/pH neutral soap. Natural dyes can change or fade slightly as they age. Hang to dry away from direct sunlight and store in a dark place.
