Huon Orchard is a colourway from home. The Huon Valley lies in the south of Tasmania, and is renowned for for its orchards bursting with apples and pears. I love how this colourway can appear a rich apple green or a more muted pear hue with more earthy tones underneath.
BFL Supersock is a soft, durable blend of British Bluefaced Leicester and nylon. Bluefaced Leicester is a British rare breed sheep that produces wool that is next-to-skin soft while being resistant to pilling. This is a smooth 4ply yarn that's just perfect for socks and mittens that are soft and hard-wearing.

Travelknitter yarns are all hand-dyed in East London, using only professional-grade acid dyes. The yarns are all carefully rinsed in a gentle wool wash.
We recommend that you treat the yarn kindly by hand-washing in cool water order to keep the colours looking their best.
We do our best to capture the colours as true to life as possible, but please keep in mind that computer monitors vary.
