I grew up in the desert of rural Utah. This colorway reminds me of the 4-corners area (where Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico meet). Many western movies are filmed there.
The last photo is with a couple mini skeins left over from the Knit$ Chic advent calendar. Those minis are named Closed Bud Hotel (day 9 of the advent).
This is my go-to DK base for my shop. It’s a standard staple of superwash merino and nylon, making it soft and resilient for any project.
Colors: teal, rusty gold, white, dark dusty rose, blended green
Yards: +\- 246
Weight: Percy DK
Fiber: 75% superwash merino, 25% nylon
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.
