I was crushed to hear about the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I have immense gratitude and appreciation for her and her lifelong work towards equality. There are a few knit/crochet patterns inspired by her collars. Some are sweaters with the white collar worked in, others are just the collar. Either way, these kits are inspired by those designs.
Buying the set includes one massive black whopper skein, and one undyed mini skein of the same yarn base. You can also add additional black skeins if you are making a sweater and need more yardage. The black skeins are semi-solid/tonals, meaning they are NOT a solid black color - they are hand-dyed.
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): semi-solid black, undyed cream/white
Fiber(s): 100% superwash merino
Weight/base: Whopper, heavy worsted, 4-ply
Length/yardage: +/- 464 yards, 250 gm; (mini skein is +/- 100 yards)
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.
