As the light half of the year fades away and the dark winter approaches, Samhain is celebrated. Traditionally recognized on October 31 in the Northern Hemisphere, this holiday (also called Halloween, All Hallow's Eve, and All Saints Day Eve) is a time for honoring those who have passed away, a time for spiritual reflection and transformation, a time for meditation and moving forward. This is the time of the year when the veil between the worlds is at it's thinnest and the darkness is explored and celebrated, appreciated for it's unique perspective and energy. What better way to mark the passing of the seasons than with this deep, inky black semi-solid color? From flashes of soft gray, to deep charcoal and jet black, this yarn subtly shifts from warm to cool and deep to even darker shades. The perfect colorway to balance a wildly variegated or speckled skein, this midnight yarn is also beautiful and strong on its own. Created as part of the Fall 2017 collection to mark Samhain or Halloween, this yarn looks especially tantalizing in this Crepuscular set.

Lighter than a fairy's wing, this blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% silk is sure to become your new favorite yarn! A 2-ply yarn with plenty of twist, this works up into gorgeous, crisp cables and textured stitches or can look simply lovely and intriguing in stockinette or lace. The silk gives it incredible sheen and absorbs dye vibrantly for a rich saturated skein.

Hand wash only to ensure your beautiful project lasts for years to come. Use only cold water and a mild detergent 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.
