Over the past year I have been very fortunate to work with two awesome women, Lisa of For the Love of Yarn and Abby of Orchidean Luxury Yarns, and so to celebrate International Women's Day we have each dyed a special colourway. 30% of the sale price of each skein will be donated to Women's Aid.
In addition to this, 30% of all sales of Banshee Yarns and TLYC knitting patterns made on March 8th will also be donated to Women's Aid.
My colourway 'Choose to Challenge' is dyed on Alpaca Sock, a soft, cosy, sock-suitable yarn. Alpaca Sock is 65% Superwash merino, 20% Alpaca & 15% nylon. The colourway is speckled so there is quite a variation between skeins, even from the same batches, so if making projects in multiple skeins, alternate skeins every couple of rows.
