I had plans for these skeins to be different, but the planets aligned and had something else in mind. ;-) I don't have a swatch...so you'll just have to let the yarn to the talking and go along with the surprise. This colorway pairs nicely with Emma on worsted weight.

Wilma Worsted - a new base that is the exact same is Whopper Worsted, but in a regular size. The Whopper skeins weigh 9 oz and are big as my head. Wilma skeins are 4 oz and are more like a regular heavy worsted size.

Colors: rusty orange, black, gray, speckels of black, some maroon, white
Yards: +\- 210
Weight/Base: Wilma, heavy worsted
Fiber: 100% superwash merino
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 Mo tablespoons, per gallon of water, of white vinegar to your wash water. That will neutralize the Ph levels and help maintain the vibrant colors.
