Fyberspates Vivacious Botanicals

Fyberspates Vivacious Botanicals 4ply

A robust high twist 100% Merino wool 4ply. This workhorse fingering weight yarn creates a warm but drapey fabric and makes cables pop out for glorious texture. Superb for sweaters and accessories.

£20.25 per skein (365m per 100g skein) | 100% Merino Wool dyed with Botanical dyes.

Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply

This yarn is something else, it is a joy to knit or crochet with and makes the most beautiful garments and accessories. It’s one of the next on my list to use, I’m just researching patterns now so if you have any recommendations for patterns then let me know 😁

Due to the soft twist and high silk content of this yarn we recommend using a 2.5mm (US 1.5) – 3.25mm (US 3) needle size, sizes above this can increase the chances of the yarn pilling.

£21.45 per skein (365m per 100g skein) | 45% Silk, 55% Merino Wool.
