Anning is a hand dyed yarn neutral of browns with speckles of blue and sage green on the standard fingering weight base. It is the perfect blend of strength and warmth. A versatile sock yarn it can also be used for garments and drapey shawls and it knits up beautifully.
Named after Mary Anning the famous fossil hunter, who as a woman, was not eligible to join the Geological Society of London and therefore not fully credited with her discoveries.

When creating larger items I recommend alternating skeins to counteract any major variations in colour as variations can exist between dye lots.
A limited stock of pre-dyed yarns are available, however for larger quantities these will be dyed to order. Back order yarns will generally be dyed and shipped within 2 weeks.
Superwash yarn can be washed in a machine, however I recommend hand washing these precious items.
All yarn is dyed by me in the North East of Scotland using professional acid dye in small batches.
I endeavour to try and exhaust the colour during the dyeing process, however depending on the colour there may be minimal bleeding on first wash.
