Hand painted kid mohair and silk yarn in peacock colours


Ask a question

This is one of my favourite yarn colours to paint as it is the first dye recipe I developed. The inspiration was the countless hours we spent as a family at Warwick Castle trailing after the peacocks within the grounds in the hope that one would drop one of their feathers in front of us...we eventually found a few up in the trees and under plants. I have them in my studio.

Each skein is hand painted by me in purples, blues and greens creating a vibrant colour palette.

It is lace weight and I usually knit this using a 4mm needle.
