I asked for help naming this colorway on Instagram, as I read through the suggestions this name came to mind. It's perfect because my father actually is a beekeeper. I often find myself buying things with bees and honeycomb on them just because it reminds me of home and my parents.
Wilma Worsted - a base that is the exact same is Whopper Worsted, but in a regular size. The Whopper skeins weigh 9 oz and are big as my head. Wilma skeins are 4 oz and are more like a regular heavy worsted size.
Colors: peacock blue, deep maroon, golden yellow, tan/cream, speckles of black
Yards: +\- 210
Weight/Base: Wilma, heavy worsted
Fiber: 100% superwash merino
Care instructions: Superwash wool will not felt in a washing machine (do NOT dry in a dryer). However, I still suggest hand washing, lay flat and shape to dry.
NOTE: Most tap water has a higher than desirable (for hand-dyed wool) pH level. You can neutralize this by simply adding 2 tablespoons, per gallon of water, of white vinegar to your wash water. That will neutralize the pH levels and help maintain the vibrant colors.
