I'm Beautiful 2 (on Salem sport weight)


I have tried to repeat this colorway a few times and this is as close as I can get. I didn't write down what I did the first time I dyed this colorway...sometimes I can still repeat a colorway pretty closely, but this isn't one of those times. I still really like this colorway, they just aren't as close to the original as I'd like.

Salem is a new sport weight base in my shop. It’s 100% superwash merino, 3-ply, very springy, squishy, and soft. Two strands held double make a perfect worsted weight.

Colors: dark teal, black, white, yellow, speckles of purple, orange
Yards: +\- 325, 3-ply
Weight: Salem, sport
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.
