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.
The first time I dyed this colorway was right before we were leaving Central Oregon. I had been looking up at the beautiful evening sky there. Being out in the middle of the woods certainly has its advantages, like little pollution- light or otherwise! I could just see the sky in yarn, the faintest blue at the horizon and stars peaking out of the purple veil of night.
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.
