Ama Sweater Kit hand-dyed with plant dyes by Nellie and Eve
N.B. This product is dyed to order and will take up to 14 days to arrive.
To celebrate our Ama Sweater Knit-Along (which has now officially ended but many of us are still going!), Helen Hicks of Nellie and Eve hand-dyed yarns is dyeing kits especially for our customers. Helen uses only plant-based dyes and her colourways are inspired by the Welsh Mountains around her. Maddie Harvey's lovely pattern can be purchased here.
Needles required 3.5mm and 4mm circular needles (60cm or 80cm depending on size), also same sizes in your preferred method of knitting small circumferences in the round for the sleeves.
When you purchase this kit, we will send you a download code for the Ama Sweater pattern by Maddie Harvey for free. Please make sure you enter your email address at checkout.
Helen has chosen a British 75% Bluefaced Leicester/25% Masham blend DK which is soft and bouncy. Helen uses plant dyes to achieve beautiful effects. We love her exciting approach to natural dyeing.
The kit comes in 2 colourway options, each consisting of 2 coordinating colours. There are two sizes of kit: XS to L and XL to 4X. Please check your size using the measurements below.
