WA&WC on Wilma Worsted
Now available on worsted weight! These have more gray and less cream than when this colorway is dyed on Salem Sport.
This colorway looks just like the name suggests; the cold of winter with the speckles of fall foliage. The swatch was made using TWO strands held double. I used the beginning and the end of the same skein and held them together. That made these sport weight skeins a lovely worsted weight.
Colors: gray, white, speckles of red, orange, yellow dark teal
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 tablespoons, per gallon of WARM water, of white vinegar to your wash water. That will neutralize the pH levels and help maintain the vibrant colors.
