Pre-Sale, Cloudy Skies AND When Autumn & Winter Collide

This pre-sale includes one full skein of When Autumn & Winter Collide (see other photos for a pic of this colorway), and one full skein of Cloudy Skies (a mostly gray tonal colorway). I will begin to dye pre-sale orders the first week of October and I will ship them in the order in which the orders were received.

This was my most popular colorway last year. It's now Fall again, so I am bringing it back. This time I am going to run a pre-sale and I also have a recommended pattern! Donnie Herrington is a local friend and knit-wear designer. His Reflect the Mountain cowl is GORGEOUS and perfect for these two colorways.

You can buy the pattern here from his website here: https://www.thejonesingtons.com/patterns/p/reflectthemountain

Salem is a sport weight base. It’s 100% superwash merino, 3-ply, very springy, squishy, and soft. Two strands held double make a perfect worsted weight.

Colors:
When Autumn & Winter Collide: gray, cream, speckles of red, green, orange, yellow
Cloudy Skies: tones of gray, some cream
Yards: +\- 325, 3-ply
Weight: Salem, sport
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 WARM water, of white vinegar to your wash water. That will neutralize the Ph levels and help maintain the vibrant colors.
