Each kit contains 4 x 100gram skeins of Yama DK Luxe in colourways Taupe, Terra Cotta, Conebush Green and Conebush Yellow. This kit with Khaki as main colour will make a similar Hide and Peak sweater to my test knit version. The pattern is by Maxim Cyr and will be published later this week.
Yama DK Luxe knits up into a cosy fabric that softens as you handle it. While the 60% Merino content is superwash, the Alpaca and Kid Mohair fibres are feltable making this a a great yarn for colourwork projects and has beautiful stitch definition. The fabric created becomes ever softer with handling and wear. Some pilling can be expected.
Dye batches do vary, please make sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project and remember to alternate skeins when knitting larger pieces. Variegated skeins take more effort to produce and are charged for a little extra. The skeins you receive may not be the identical skeins form the photograph.

I recommend hand washing garments in cold water. Do not agitate when washing, this yarn can felt. Soak in a wool wash and rinse in clean water with a drop of essential oil. Roll in a towel to get the water out and dry flat.
Note that very dark saturated colourways can give off some residual dye on the hands while knitting, this is called “crocking”, read about it on the “Care Instructions” page under Info in the main menu.
