DY283 is a lovely, hardwearing, mothproofed, pure wool on handy 25g skeins. It won’t shrink or felt when washed, making these hanks perfect to dye.


All our undyed yarns can be dyed with hot or cold water dyes using tools and equipment you would have in your kitchen. Wool needs to be dyed with hot water or acid dyes and can also be dyed with natural dyes – into solid or unique space-dyed colourways.

This simple yarn is perfect for jobs that need to last, so is ideal for knitting into socks and excellent for stitching into canvas projects.

The same size and specification as Appleton’s Tapestry Wool 4ply hanks, but at a fraction of the price. Make your needlepoint and canvas work unique by dyeing the wool to your own shades before stitching.

You might not have thought about making socks from tapestry wool, or indeed stitching tapestries from sock wool, but why not? Both applications need strength and to be hardwearing, which is exactly what this yarn is. It won’t shrink or felt when washed (just be careful that you don’t machine wash for too long or too hot as it may “full” slightly) making it an excellent option. Dye to solid shades or space-dye for the best dressed feet in town.
