Preseli from Garthenor Organic - Ritual Dyes Skip to main content

Preseli from Garthenor Organic


To create the subtle, complex pair of bases that make up Preseli, they're mill-blended as tops before spinning. By blending this way, Garthenor is able to get a smooth, even top that keeps the deep grey blend, perfect for heathery tones once dyed.

A blend of Polwarth, Romney and Hebridean, Preseli is Garthenor's softest yarn ever. This color palette is a dream for colourwork.

    Care Instructions

    Hand wash in cold water. Lay flat to dry. 

    We always recommend swatching for any project. Each dye lot is unique. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Alternating skeins is the best way to prevent possible pooling, flashing or a sudden shift of color. It's easy! Just work 1-2 row stripes from two balls of yarn (carrying the yarn up the side).

    We try hard to capture the essence of each colorway, but please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
