Shatner's Bassoon - Tia Merino - Merino single ply


Photo copyright of Brass Eye, a fkn hilarious satire show from the UK in the late 90s. Episode 2 was a report on the made-up drug Cake from Czechoslovakia, which was known to activate the part of the brain known as the Shatner's Bassoon. Cake is neon yellow.

Hand-dyed speckled and splashed yellow, orange, purple, green.

Truth be told, this yarn base is my most favourite to dye as it takes the colour so uniquely. This single-ply merino yarn is nothing short of being pure luxury. With plenty of character, the dynamic high twist makes the yarn a little stronger but I’d definitely not recommend using this for socks as it is too delicate.

On stockinette, single ply yarns have a tendency to bias but for lacework, the sky is the limit. Once washed and blocked, this sophisticated merino yarn has an amazing drape, perfect for small accessories like a shawl.
