Notes from the dye pots #6

Fresh out the dye pots this week, a new yarn base to introduce.  Tyan Lace (I’m naming all my yarn bases for the sheep counting system Yan, Tyan, Tethera etc) is an 80% British Bluefaced Leicester and 20% Silk 2ply lace weight yarn.  It’s beautifully soft and the silk gives it a wonderful shine, perfect for a lace shawl to keep your neck warm.  Here’s the first three colours in Tyan Lace – Sea Green, Plumlicious and Rose.
