The iconic look of the 1960s is big hair, perfectly sculpted no matter the occasion. As bold as the clothes she wore with it, any self-respecting 60s housewife would get her hair styled in a bouffant known as a beehive. The size ranged from just a small pouf above her forehead to a towering wonder that could hide any number of things in it's carefully hairsprayed depths. Hidden in Her Beehive blends happy sunshine-y yellow with florescent orange and bright pumpkin for a skein that's so bold you might want to grab your sunglasses. A beautiful blend is achieved by the tonal colorway that won't stripe or pool, resulting in a beautiful flow of color.
Foxy Fingering is a perfect blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon spun in a 2 ply cable twist for strength and durability. Soft enough for next to the skin wear but strong enough for socks, sweaters, and hardwearing accessories, this yarn is sure to become a favorite! The twisted texture of the yarn causes cables and structured stitches to stand out beautifully and really highlights the dimensional colors of the dye.
You can machine wash Foxy on a gentle setting with cold water and lay flat to dry. For best results, I would recommend hand washing to ensure even longer lasting products. Always test washing instructions on a swatch before washing the final project!
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.
