Pre-order colours

We have an order in place with Harrisville to restock the most popular colours of Nightshades. Due to increased demand for Nightshades, we’ve added a pre-order option for the out-of-stock colours that will be arriving in this order. We don’t have an exact arrival date but we’re expecting to receive the yarn in early to mid February. Pre-orders will be despatched as soon as we receive the yarn.

The yarn
The yarn is described as a DK but having worked with it I'd consider it a bit closer to a Worsted weight. The loftiness created by the woollen spun structure means that it can be worked at a wide range of gauges. 

Grown in Montana, Scoured in Texas, Dyed in Philadelphia, and Spun in New Hampshire.

100 gram skein (3.5 oz.), approx. 250 yards


All the yarn is black, blended with the following colours. Harrisville have also launched a design collection of sweaters and accessories by Whitney Hayward which are available as individual pattern pdfs.
