Shannon (on Salem sport weight)


This colorway is so similar to my Shannon colorway...that I changed the name. Without realizing it...I keep dyeing this colorway or something very similar to it - so I just named it after myself. I obviously love these colors. lol

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

Colors: dark teal, black, white, yellow, speckles of purple, orange
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 water, of white vinegar to your wash water. That will neutralize the Ph levels and help maintain the vibrant colors.
