Swamp Witch-Dyed to Order

Potion Yarns

Regular price $26.00

She's not too tidy, not quite perfect. Her hair is in tangles, her eyes a little wild. She plays by her own rules, and lives outside the bounds of normal society. But beneath her unkempt and wild exterior, she's powerful and magnificent, a sorceress of great reknown! Look closely through the rough outside and see the pearl hidden inside. In every great fairy tale, there's a great witch, sorceress, or powerful magician ready to aid the hero or teach them a lesson. But not all magicians are beautiful on the outside...the lesson is to look at more than just the exterior of a person to see their true value. That's the teaching of the swamp witch.

This incredible colorway was the delightful result of a mistake. Cooking up new recipes, I got creative and attempted to mix some colors that did not want to play nice together; the resulting yarn looked like something you might find rotting in the forest! To redeem the attempt, I added a wash of busy speckles in multiple colors that completely transformed this ugly yarn into a beautiful, complex, intriguing colorway! Brilliant purple, green, and warm auburn speckles dance across a background that shifts from soft brown to bronze to mossy green for a woodsy, magical colorway.

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.
