The Graveyard Book
I just finished reading this book (running my kids around from swim team to diving league gives me lots of reading time!) and I LOVED it! Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors. I was dreaming about this colorway as soon as the graveyard was described. The twisting, tangled ivy on the old gravestones and Bod’s mouse-colored hair led me to this colorway.
This yarn base is 100% made in America and it's thicker, and more springy than my other sock weight base. They are also 115 gm as opposed to 100 gm. If you like a little thicker, more sturdy feel, this base is for you!
This base is great for many project; socks, sweater, blankets, etc. I love the smooth look of 4-ply sock weight, which also adds some extra strength.
Colors: tan, earthy green, black speckles
Fiber(s): 80% superwash merino, 20% nylon
Weight: Willie USA, sock/fingering
Length/yardage: +/- 434, 115 gm
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.
