WHAT IS IT?
DY273 is a fabulous textured strong yarn spun from 80% cotton and 20% linen to create a unique marled yarn of natural colours. Its popcorn effect of slubs, lumps and bumps is ideal for all types of projects and is perfect to dye.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
All our undyed yarns can be dyed with hot or cold water dyes using tools and equipment you would have in your kitchen. Cotton and linen need to be dyed with cold water, procion or fibre reactive dyes and can also be dyed with natural dyes – into solid or unique space-dyed colourways.
The texture of this yarn will add character to all types of projects whether knitted or crocheted, and adds beautiful texture to tassels and braids. It's strong enough to use as a warp or weft and can be couched into embroideries for a lovely surface detail.
Both elements of the yarn will dye brilliantly, with the cream cotton remaining bright and fresh and the more browny linen turning more muted or heathery.
