The Smell of Rain

Did you know there is a word for the smell of rain? It's Petrichor. I would have named this colorway Petrichor...but that honestly doesn't sound as romantic as just saying "the smell of rain." I am feeling spring vibes from this colorway - especially that earthy green dye color.

This colorway pairs well with Dusk, Cotton Candy, Witches Hat, and Asparagus found in the Tabitha's Tonals listing. See 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.

Color(s): earthy green, white, speckles of blue, pink, black
Fiber(s): 80% superwash 19.5 micron merino, 20% nylon
Weight: light sock/fingering
Length/yardage: +/- 450, 100 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.
