Cooler weather = thicker yarn! I haven't dyed worsted weight yarn for months...I've missed this base! This shade of blue dye...oh man, it's pretty.
Wilma Worsted - This has been my go-to worsted weight yarn for nearly a decade. It's one of the first yarn bases I ever dyed. It's versatile, springy, soft and durable.
Colors: peacock blue, black, gray, lime green, sage green, 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 tablespoons, per gallon of water, of white vinegar to your wash water. That will neutralize the pH levels and help maintain the vibrant colors.
