Save Big! This is on sale because it was dyed using my old dyes (I switched in January 2018) which I later learned was prone to sun bleaching. So, there may be some damage to the original colors but they will still knit up wonderfully.
For those who follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some photos that I shared after my first gallery show. That show was inspired by the desire to help save the coral reefs after learning about the mass bleachings in 2016 and 2017. This yarn was the first time I was playing around with colors while thinking about those reefs. 10% of the proceeds will go to the Coral Reef Alliance to aid conservation efforts around the world.
This hand-dyed sock yarn is a deliciously soft and squishy blend of 70% Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Nylon, and 5% Stellina. It is difficult to tell in the photo, but there is a subtle sparkle that is extra magical.
This yarn is superwash and can be put through the machine. I still recommend only washing on gentle cycle and cool water to make your knits last as long as possible. Oh, and dry flat of course!
Please keep in mind that all hand dyes are a little different and that is what makes them beautiful. Additionally, monitor colors can vary.
