This colour is inspired by Cadmium. Often used as a pigment in paint to achieve yellow, orange and red - which is surprising from a metal that starts as a bluish-white!

Hand dyed fibre is special. Each braid is unique and tells its own story, with its own subtle differences in colour. If you're working with more than one braid, use portions from each braid in your spinning to avoid any noticeable variations in colour.

Care for your finished item: gentle hand wash in cool water with mild washing liquid. Lay flat in shade to dry.
