2 sage green available ~
0 sage silvery-blue available ~

I grew up in the Utah desert. There was sagebrush all around. Depending on how much rain we got, the color would be either more green-ish or more silvery blue-ish. That is exactly how this dye color works - one batch was more sage green, and one batch was more of a silvery-blue sage color. You can see this well in the second pic; the two skeins on the left are sage green, and the two on the right are silvery-blue sage. Both variations pair nicely with Winter Solstice (you can see them together in the last photo).

Wilma Worsted - a new base that is the exact same is Whopper Worsted, but in a regular size. The Whopper skeins weigh 9 oz and are big as my head. Wilma skeins are 4 oz and are more like a regular heavy worsted size.

Sage Green colors: sage green base, peacock blue, and tan accents
Silvery-Blue Sage colors: silvery blue base, peacock blue and tan accents
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 Mo tablespoons, per gallon of water, of white vinegar to your wash water. That will neutralize the Ph levels and help maintain the vibrant colors.
