Mardi Gras


Mardi Gras colors, I dye them so often without even thinking about it. I usually don't even realize it until they are dyed and I am taking photos. I just really like these colors together. I visited New Orleans for the first time just before Covid-19 and really had a great time. Such a fascinating place. Very cool.

SILK SKEINS ARE HERE! It’s been years since I have dyed 100% silk skeins and I am having so much fun with these! I forgot how different they are from wool! They have ZERO stretch - keep that in mind if you make a garment. The yardage from my supplier says they are +/- 437 yards, but when I measured one skein (using just an Amish swift...nothing 100% accurate), I got +/- 394 yards. I am listing them as around 400 yards.

Color(s): purple, green, golden yellow, some white
Fiber(s): 100% tussah silk
Weight: sock/fingering, 2-ply
Length/yardage: +/- 400 yards, 100g
Care instructions: hand wash with delicate detergent (do NOT bleach, bleach destroys silk), lay flat or hang to dry.
