Pipe and Slippers - Murus Bulky
The colour story:
Start with an old, well used woody dark brown (pipe) and add some very extra purple velvet slippers and you have the foundation of Pipe and Slippers. Dusty, faded bark and faded lilac appear as mellowing tones in small areas. No tobacco is required to appreciate the cozy warmth of this colourway.
As with all hand-made things, there is always some variation between skeins even within dyelots. If you plan to make a larger project, blend your skeins through transition rows.
The yarn story:
Murus bulky is a buttery soft and supremely luxurious yarn made of 100% baby alpaca fibre. It is 2-ply yarn with good but not excessive loft. This yarn is perfect for projects that will be next to your skin because it is so delightfully squishy and soft. Not recommended for hard-wearing projects like mittens or socks. **Alpaca has minimal stitch memory, block your projects gently - they won't spring back if over-stretched.**
HANDWASH COOL and lay flat to dry ONLY - unless you want to felt it!
