Koi Pond 2
2 available ~
This is the second time I dyed this color way and it turned out a little different than the first. The denim blue sections are darker and there is less forest green. I used all the same dye colors, they are just placed different on the skein. The swatch is from the ORIGINAL color way, but does still give you a general idea of how they look when stitched up.
The splashes of orange in these skeins totally make them look like goldfish swimming in a koi pond! The shades of blue give these skeins a denim vibe.
These skeins are MASSIVE! They weigh around 9 ounces (250gm) each and have over 460 yards. BIG YARN BABIES! Ideal for larger projects like sweaters, blankets, cardigans, etc.
Color(s): denim blue, earthy green, orange, teal
Fiber(s): 100% superwash merino
Weight: heavy worsted/Aran
Length/yardage: +/- 464 yards, 250 gm
Care instructions: Superwash wool will not felt in a washing machine, but I would 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.
