Welcome is a firmly twisted Supersoft, Superwash Merino wool blended with 20% nylon. This yarn will produce beautiful and sturdy socks that will wear a long time. It also knits up well as shawls, scarves, mittens and hats, with great stitch definition, and next-to-the-skin soft.
Thistle: Although the Musk Thistle (third image) is an invasive weed, introduced to the US from Eurasia, I have found that it has its own beauty, as with so many things. I have chosen to capture its lovely flower in my new colorway. Please see my website for the images that inspired this colorway: http://www.ravenridgefiber.com/.
My yarns and fibers are hand painted in small batches. Minor variations between and within dyelots are part of their charm. The images show a typical representative of this colorway. This yarn captures this color richness with short color runs to minimize pooling.
Welcome Yarn 80% Superwash Merino Wool 20% Nylon 100g, 400 yd, Fingering Weight yarn Enough for a pair of medium socks or a scarf or shawl. Machine Wash, Dry Flat
I have tried to accurately represent the color of the yarn in the photos. But my monitor and your monitor might show the colors slightly differently.
The yarn was dyed and stored in a smoke-free pet friendly home.
