Hand-dyed speckled and splashed yarn orange and green.
You will not like this yarn. It is rugged, it is unapologetically scratchy and it is hardy. You will not like this yarn if you only wear merino.
You will ADORE this yarn if you love your wool to look, feel and smell like it once kept a sheep warm. Cheviot is often the wool that is used in Scottish tweeds. It's a dense, lofty and hardy wool from a hill breed of sheep used to living in windy conditions. It is very much underrated in the hand knitting world but it rocks the colour like a catwalk queen.
Compared to merino, the most widely dyed wool in the hand dyeing industry, it isn't as soft but isn't too coarse either. If you're a little more on the skin sensitive side, I'd recommend this superwash treated yarn for outerwear.
But if you ADORE wearing wool that actually feels like wool, crack on and knit whatever you like with fierce abandon!
