4 ply / Fingering Weight - Merino + Nylon Slub Yarn
Blackwattle’s Scribbly Slub yarn is a limited edition range of 4ply (fingering weight) slub wool. Hand dyed for release during the 2022 Handmade Canberra Christmas Market, our remaining stock is now available from our farm shop and online.
Scribbly Slub is a two ply construction, milled with a thread of superwash merino spun unevenly with a thread of nylon to create the terrific textural highlights throughout. Slub yarn is ideal for headbands, hats, scarves, cowls and shawls. But if you love the novelty of this texture, you can really substitute slub yarn into most 4ply knitting and crochet projects! Slub yarns can also be double stranded with a lace weight yarn to create a heavier weight and lovely fluffy halo effect.
Not to be overlooked, the art yarn qualities of slub also means this is a fabulous option for creating some wonderful weaved projects!
Scribbly Slub is available in 14 limited release multicoloured colourways, all hand dyed by our team in small batches, here on our farm.
