When I dyed these skeins...my only goal was to use my FAVORITE dye color, which is this dark teal. Then I added three other colors I thought would work well together. This morning I realized the end result looks nearly identical to 4-5 other colorways I have dyed recently. So I am just going to embrace the realization...if I had a "signature colorway" it would be this. So I named it after myself. ;-)

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: dark teal, sunflower yellow, chestnut brown, dark purple, some white possible
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.
