Matt asked me to dye this color way back in May for him to knit the Irene Cowl. When I was asking him to describe the blue he had in mind he told me to think of Suttle Lake mixed with Blue Pool.
This single ply fingering weight 100% Merino is the yarn of my dreams! Light and soft, it knits up gorgeously and is the answer to most fingering weight projects. It is perfect for sweaters and shawls, items that don’t get a ton of wear and tear like socks (I seriously beg you, don’t make socks with this! They will wear out in like 5 months and it’s heartbreaking. Go check out Diva Sock for socks!).
When it’s time to wash, seriously take care of this amazing yarn. I recommend using a wool soak and follow the hand washing instructions on the soak (my favorite are the kind you don’t have to rinse), and dry flat.
Please keep in mind that all hand dyed are a little different and that is what makes them beautiful. Additionally, monitor colors can vary.
