Carnival-Temptress DK-Mad Science Experiment

Gauge: 4.5-5 stitches per 1" on size US 7-9 needles
These lovely skeins were the first early prototype of Carnival Fun House and were used to solidify and finalize the recipe. Even though I loved the bright pops of aqua and pink with happy sunshine yellow, I didn't love the way certain speckles got a little too murky and muddy in spots and I wanted less gold in the overall completed colorway, so I went back to the dye pots to create the updated version. But you can still snag a skein or two of the original attempt, with it's luscious and lovely, happy, quirky colors!
Like a sultry siren, Temptress DK will entice you into your next project with luxurious, squishable 100% superwash merino! A strong 4 ply yarn with a smooth texture, Temptress absolutely glows with color. The bouncy, resilient fiber is perfect for all kinds of projects. Try it for your next sweater, pair of gloves, or cozy hat! The easy care makes it great for baby and kid's items, toys, homewares, and garments.
Superwash merino makes this yarn an easy care machine washable option. Make sure to use cold water and the gentle setting on your machine. Tumble dry low, or lay flat to dry. To ensure your project lasts as long as possible, you may want to hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry. Always test your washing instructions on a swatch!
I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, be sure to alternate rows to ensure variegation. Please note that each skein is a unique work of art and may not exactly match the photos, but will be very close. I may reskein your yarn before shipping to avoid tangles if necessary.
