"Double, double, toil and trouble,

This famous incantation from the witches of Shakespeare's Macbeth is a famous quote around Halloween. This delightfully speckled skein debuting in time for Samhain 2017 is the perfect color to whip up some magic on your needles or hook! A busy speckle, this colorway incoporates neon acid green, deep emerald, neutral gray, and jet black dancing across a bright white skein. The dyes "break" several times on this lovely color, creating random bursts of color to make each one unique. Beautiful on its own, this colorway also looks exquisite worked with Surcease of Sorrow and Samhain. To order these magical Fall 2017 colorways as a set, click here.

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.
