Oh, Lady Midnight, I fear that you grow old, The stars eat your body and the wind makes you cold... Inspired by the Leonard Cohen song, Lady Midnight is a very dark navy tonal yarn
This is a dyed-to-order listing and the yarn will be dyed especially for you on your chosen base. The yarn base shown in the photograph is Barbarella, with gold stellina.
I will endeavour to ship all dyed-to-order purchases within 3 weeks of your order date. If there is any variance to this (for example, for very large orders or if I have a shop holiday coming up) I will contact you to discuss as soon as I have received your order.
Please note that different fibres and yarn weights take dye differently and therefore there may be some variation to the colour shown if you purchase on a different yarn base. Kitt Suri alpaca in particular usually dyes to a lighter shade.

All our yarns are ethically sourced. ** Please note that colours will appear less saturated on non-superwash bases (NSW). You find out more about our yarn bases here.
Please note that although I try to ensure that the product photos are true to life, colours may vary depending on your monitor or device.
All my yarn is hand-dyed in small batches and variations between skeins should be expected. If you buy more than one skein of the same colourway then I will endeavour to select them from the same batch. Due to the individual nature of hand-dyed yarn, I would always recommend alternating skeins or knitting from both ends of the same ball if you are concerned about colour pooling or mismatching. If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact me.
To keep your items looking beautiful, I would advise hand washing in luke warm water and a mild detergent. Dry flat.
Whilst every effort is taken to rinse all remaining dye from the yarn, there may be a slight colour bleed on the first wash.
