The Callicarpa is an ornamental tree, best known as beautyberry, which in the summer is absolutely covered in clusters of purple berries. This beautiful semi-solid colourway is a duskier rose pink than usual.


Extra-Fine DK is my 100% Superwash Merino DK base. It’s 19.5 micron Merino wool means this yarn is super squishy and soft, but also light enough to be used for large projects like sweaters and blankets.

200m/218 yards per 100g

This base is DK weight 4ply yarn. I'd recommend needle sizes between 3mm - 6.5mm depending on pattern and desired gauge.


All of my yarn is prepared and stored in a smoke and pet free environment.

Superwash wool can be machine washed on a delicates cycle at 30⁰c, but I would recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry. Do not machine wash non-superwash wool. I recommend hand washing in cool water with very little agitation and a gentle soap. Lay flat to dry.

I have done my best to accurately represent the true colour of the skeins with my pictures, but due to differences in screen settings, what you see may not be exactly the same shade as the pictures I’ve taken.

As with all hand dyed yarn, no two skeins will ever be identical. However, where possible I will send skeins from the same dye lot together. A little bit of colour run may happen in the first few washes, but this will be minimal.
