 Product Description

This is a very special colorway, unique and not repeatable, and so hard for me to part with. Often, when I am dyeing locks or fleece, there will be a stubborn dye that refuses to fully exhaust. Rather than overcook and felt the fiber, I add some undyed top or yarn to 'take up' the excess dye. This skein was created by adding it, dry, to the top of several different locks dyebaths over a couple of days. This created a watercolor effect, with fluid, layered colors, and some lovely undyed areas.

132 yds/121 m
4.25 oz/121 g
100% soft Peruvian Merino
2-ply  bulky weight yarn
Knitting gauge 2-2.5 sts/in, US 11-13 (8.0-9.0 mm) needles

Fantastic thick and thin texture- a thick and thin soft singles plied with a thin singles. This yarn takes dye marvelously- you get a wonderful watercolor effect as the colors transition over the fat slubs. Wooly Bear is very soft and wonderful for any next to the skin item. Fantastic for fast knits for folks with sensitive skin.

Hand wash, lay flat to dry. Be gentle, this yarn can felt.
