Spring Snow, OOAK

3 available ~

We recently had an epic snowstorm. We got so much snow! I grabbed a cooler and filled the whole thing with pure white sparkly snow and headed to my dye studio. This is the second of three colorways I dyed WITH snow. Dyeing with snow (and ice) makes the dye adhere to the yarn slower and leaves a dappled color effect. It's super cool and unique. As a result, this colorway cannot be repeated, so these are all OOAK (one of a kind).

I kind of love the irony of using snow to dye bright spring/summer colors. ;-)

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: lime green, teal, pink, peacock blue, white, black
Yards: +\- 325, 3-ply
Weight/Base: Salem, Sport weight, 100 grams
Fiber: 100% superwash merino
Care instructions: This can be machine washed. To make finished items keep their vibrant colors, hand wash. 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.
