Gytha Worsted is named after a Nanny Ogg, from the Discworld Series. She is a loveable and much liked character, to all but her many daughters in law (Which is said by many to be her only failing). This warm welcoming fully figured mother and witch embodies this yarn, It’s ridiculous softness and ability to take colour, along with it’s good wearing qualities, make it the perfect yarn, for something next to the skin soft or to wrap you up in warmth as a jumper, it’s almost magical.

Each skein is dyed in small dyelots, and as is the nature of hand dyed yarn, colours can vary between dyelot. So if you are interested in making a garment or item that requires several skeins please order from the same dyelot.

This skein is machine washable, though to preserve colour and texture in your garments, gentle hand washing is recommended.
