Messy Mermaid

Teal and purple give me mermaid vibes, and these skeins are a mess of those colors. A dysfunctional mermaid. The teal skein in the last photo pairs well with this colorway.

New base! I hope to make this base a staple in my shop, it's unlike anything else I sell so this is a trial run. I would love to hear your feedback about working with a yarn like this. These are domestically sourced, unprocessed, non-superwashed wool skeins. Although they are NOT superwashed wool, they share some of the same qualities because these will not felt easily. (Superwashed wool will not felt EVER and therefore can be machine washed repeatedly.) They are a bouncy, buttery skeins that does not have the slippery feel that some superwashed wool can have. They are ideal for fair isle work, lace work, cabling, etc. What makes these so magical is they have many very thin strands that have been individually twisted, that are then twisted together. This multi-twist process is why they don't felt easily, but still retain all the natural characteristics of natural wool.

Color(s): teal, purple, white, gray, pink
Fiber(s): 100% merino wool
Weight: sock/fingering
Length/yardage: +/- 382 yards, 100 grams
Care instructions: dry clean, hand wash in cool water, or machine wash with cool water gentle cycle (only if your washing machine is truly gentle), lay flat and shape/pin to dry. Do not machine dry or iron flat.

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.
