KRISTIN LAVRANSDATTER Hand-Dyed Yarn on Buttery Soft DK

Regular price $29.00

Quantity Available: 3
This yarn was inspired by the main character in Sigrid Undset's wonderful trilogy. The novels are set in late medieval Norway. The main character, Kristin, makes a terrible mistake but goes on to do much good in spite of it.


Like the character of Kristin, the yarn has a pleasing complexity to it. I dyed it on my So Silky Sock base using rose, peach, and lavender on a background of gray.

I dyed it on my Buttery Soft DK base, which is made of 45% baby alpaca, 45% extra-soft 19.5 micron merino, and 10% silk, and it really lives up to its name! 

Like most, this colorway is a little more muted on Buttery Soft DK than on many of my other yarn bases due to the alpaca and silk content.

Please note that this is NOT a superwash yarn. That means it can felt with agitation and changes in temperature, so it should be washed by hand in cool water. On the other hand, it can be fulled, making it a great option for weavers.
