PERSIA - the colourway name is called Persia. It is our oldest colourway at Countess Ablaze and from 2020 onwards, whenever anybody orders this and pays by PayPal, PayPal suspends our account pending investigation for "suspicious reasons." The colourway is called Persia as the yarn is blue-turquoise and turquoise the stone originates from Persia/Iran. So we're doctoring the name of the colourway of the listing because this a ridiculous situation.

Hand-dyed yarns are unique and each skein can have subtle differences. If using more than one skein, alternate skeins every few rows to blend the colours.

 

Do you have a desert island yarn? I have finally found mine and it was The English Gentleman (BFL and Masham)  and then this beauty of a yarn came along, called my name and I am smitten.

Soft, buttery, rustic without being scratchy, this is my perfect yarn. The undyed base is a greyish colour from the grey Gotland so the dye results in a rich and textured coverage. This will create a fabric with plenty of drape.
