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.

Gaia fingering is a 100% superwash merino wool. The 2-ply spin gives it a tight twist  that makes it strong and durable. The lustrous merino takes color beautifully, resulting in a glowing, rich saturation. This yarn is perfect for a variety of projects including socks, sweaters, shawls, gloves, hats, and baby clothes. 

You can machine wash the Gaia fingering on a gentle setting with cold water and tumble dry on the lowest setting. To help your projects retain their shape even longer, you may want hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry. 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.
