Mi Casa & Snow
9 available ~
This colorway looks very different on worsted weight than it does on sock weight. I used the same dye colors, but obviously didn't paint them on the yarn in exactly the same way. The end result looks like fall leaves with snow - which is what my backyard looks like right now.
Wilma Worsted - This has been my go-to worsted weight yarn for nearly a decade. It's one of the first yarn bases I ever dyed. It's versatile, springy, soft and durable.
Colors: white, teal, rustic red, golden yellow, blended colors
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.
