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.
If you love bulky yarns, this is perfect for you! It is 50% Superwash Merino and 50% Nylon so this yarn won’t shrink if you wash it, its super soft, strong, and warm. Plus, the 110 yards is enough for a hat.
Who doesn’t love superwash? This knit can be washed in the machine and put in the dryer on low. However, after the time I put in, I still prefer to hand wash using a wool soak and drying flat.
Please keep in mind that all hand dyes are a little different and that is what makes them beautiful. Additionally, monitor colors can vary.
