Single ply double knit and fabulous

Sea anemones flow gracefully in the ocean bed, like little salty ballerinas. I saw a picture of one and simply had to recreate it in yarn form.

This single-ply DK weight yarn base is just so soft. At 220 meters long, it’s perfect length for knitting that warm hat/beanie or neck warmer. 
Looking for this in multi-ply yarn? See my Sea Anemone in Gaia DK.

Because designer indie-dyed yarns are created in small batches, differences are to be expected between skeins (and often even in the same batch). Because of this, I advise you buy as many skeins as needed for your project and alternate them to avoid pooling and colour mismatches. Find out more in our Fibre Bases and Info page.

Ooh, nice reviews

"Lovely lovely yarn, and it came beautifully packages with a wee bag of lavender that makes it smell delicious!"
"I had a feeling this yarn would not disappoint and I was absolutely correct! Stunning colours... so rich and mesmerising 😍 Incredibly soft too. Tarka agrees and was gutted he couldn’t keep it 🤣😻 Thank you also Leonor for the little extras that make yarn opening a delight for the senses and a lovely experience. xx"

  • Keep yarn in a dry room away from direct sunlight. Airtight boxes are recommended. Don’t place anything heavy on top of the skein to avoid squishing it.
  • I recommend adding lavender sachets to the storage container for pest prevention.
  • Hand wash your finished product separately using wool-specific detergents, dry flat. Hand dyed fibres may bleed a little in the first couple of washes.
