New yarn base - Rockabilly | Countess Ablaze

New yarn base - Rockabilly

So our yarn dealer calls this yarn base Zebra Yarn and it's clear to see why. That barber pole black and white effect is a dead-ringer for a stripy horse. But this is me and it got me thinking, just because the yarn dealer calls it Zebra, it doesn't mean that I have to.

So my thought process went:

Zebra >> animal print >> Betty Page >> Rockabilly

Introducing Rockabilly to Countess Ablaze; our subscribers to our yarn club Yarn Cartel got hold of this first in March 2021.

This superwash merino yarn is available in both fingering and DK weights as a unicorn yarn meaning we'll have it in stock occasionally as a treat. It has two plies are one-ply has black merino sporadically hijacking it to create this animal print effect.

Supersoft, bouncy and drinks the dye.

The merino wool has been superwash treated but as I always recommend, wash in hand-warm water by hand with a smidge of washing up liquid to preserve the vivid dye. We use professional acid dyes in a custom-built yarn dyeing studio in Manchester city centre, UK.
