Tide Pool 2

A friend I went to school with asked me to repeat this colorway. Fun fact...I actually 'lost my lunch' all over her in 1st grade. YIKES. Of course we will occasionally talk about it. Sorry, Tina.
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: dark teal, peacock blue, 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.
