Walking through the forest you spy a mysterious, luminous mist rising from the marshy ground. As you draw closer, it slides away, elusive and quick. You seem to hear a mystical chorus of voices...or was it the wind? The fairies are surely out tonight and up to mischief!
This ethereal colorway was the result of a happy accident. While in the middle of dyeing another color, a splash of bright green got on several of the skeins, "ruining" their color. I decided to use it as a moment of inspiration and created this shifting blue-green with dark speckles and fell in love! The magical glazes of color create a rich, dimensional skein that eludes categorization and leaves you with a random flow of color.
With incredible bounce and super soft feel, the Bombshell Worsted weight is sure to become a favorite! 100% superwash merino makes this smooth, round yarn perfect for all types of projects. The luscious 4 ply spin makes this beautiful yarn a little drapey but still strong enough to hold it's shape. When you knit with this lovely fiber, the yarn feels like butter sliding along your needles! Try it for sweaters, wraps, hats, gloves, and baby clothes...even home wares!
Superwash merino makes this yarn an easy care machine washable option. Make sure to use cold water and the gentle setting on your machine. Tumble dry low, or lay flat to dry. You may want to hand wash in cold water to ensure an even longer lasting project. 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.
