Ballista Kettle Brew - Sands of Time

Ballista Kettle Brew - Sands of Time

Regular price £20

Ballista Kettle Brew is a new addition to the Ballista range! These gorgeous skeins are all one offs and truly unique.  The dye technique used means the dyes mix in the pot which creates some stunning colours.  Each skein from a dyelot is different to the other and each new dyelot will vary from its predecessor.  We like this! Pair with a Ballista semi-solid for big comfy shawls, or incorporate it into a garment!

Ballista Kettle Brew is a big and beautiful 150g skein of non-mulesed Merino! The extra weight means more meterage; with 600m per skein you'll be able to get a large shawl from just one skein, or a jumper from 2 - 4 skeins depending on size. The Merino used to spin this yarn comes from farms in Argentina and Uruguay that do not practice mulesing. When knitted up Ballista produces a beautiful soft fabric with plenty of drape and a lovely sheen. It has excellent stitch definition for a Merino yarn. Ballista is available in 10 semi-solid colours which all go with each other. If you need to pick 2 or more colours you can be confident they will play nice with each other!


Please be aware that these are hand dyed yarns and as is the nature with this dye technique, the skeins you receive will vary from the ones pictured!
