Cywyn 4-Ply is a soft, springy and glossy Corriedale 4-ply/fingering weight yarn. It’s high-twist, so is suitable for socks, and is great for cables and textured knitting.
Corriedale is a cross between merino and Lincoln Longwool, and combines their softness and depth of colour. It’s soft, hard-wearing, very springy and yet able to be worn next-to-skin. Each 100 gram skein of Cywyn 4-Ply is approximately 400 metres of yarn. The Cywyn base is Falklands Corriedale, spun in Yorkshire.
Cywyn isn’t superwash treated, so it needs a hand-wash with gentle detergent in tepid to warm water in order to prevent felting and to keep the colours looking their best.
