I am crazy about this blue sapphire dye. I added a few earthy green, and golden yellow/orange speckles...and had no idea what to name this colorway! Many Yarn Baby followers on Insta said this colorway reminded them of Vincent van Gogh's painting, The Starry Night.
You can see this colorway along side a few other semi-solid colorways that where dyed the same colors as the speckles in the last photo.
This yarn base is VERY soft and thin. They feel like a silk blend, but it's the super fine superwash merino that is so dreamy and soft. With a micron count of 19.5, and 20% nylon, these skeins are great for items you want to have a lovely drape; shawls, blankets, scarves, sweater, cardigan, etc. I love the smooth look of 4-ply sock weight, which also adds some extra strength. If you want to try it but don't like thin yarn, try two strands held double for a lovely DK weight.

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.
