Hand Dyed Yarn "Moonlit Amethyst" Purple Grey Beige Merino Nylon DK Weight Superwash 248yds 100g
MERYLON 75/25 DK: Approximately 100g/248 yards 75/25 superwash Merino wool/nylon. This is a 4-ply DK weight yarn. It was kettle-dyed a medium tonal orchid purple then overdyed with medium brown and finally, grey with a bit of navy. The result is a silvery, tonal amethyst. There are small areas with beige/brown undertones.
This is a great all-purpose DK weight merino and nylon blend; a plumped-up version of the Merylon 75/25 sock base. It is soft, lofty and smooshy with a nice twist, generous yardage, and with the nylon, will be durable. This would be perfect for winter accessories, bulky socks or a large shawl or cape.
While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Shipping & policies
I ship usually within 1 business day of payment confirmation, via the most economical Canada Post option. Unfortunately, postage costs in Canada are high (sorry, eh!) but domestically, do include tracking and insurance, plus delivery is relatively quick. If you wish to add any other features or expedite the package, please contact me for a quote.
CANADIAN BUYERS: I can ship domestically, up to 3 regular hanks via UNTRACKED lettermail using vacuum-sealed packaging if you wish to save shipping costs. One hank = $3.50, two hanks = $4.50, three hanks = $5.50. Let me know at time of purchase and I'll refund excess postage paid.
If you are local let me know and I will issue a free shipping coupon and we can arrange a pick-up.
U. S. BUYERS: For most reasonable rates, shipping small packets to the U. S. is via air but EXCLUDES insurance and tracking. Delivery should be within 14 business days (usually less), but occasionally takes a bit longer. If you'd like upgraded shipping, let me know and I'll get a quote. Larger packages of 4 hanks or more are automatically shipped with tracking.
INTERNATIONAL: Outside North America, shipping is generally UNTRACKED AIR, a medium-cost option. I will select the best option available for the shipping paid, especially with larger packages. I can ship untracked ground - which costs less - and will refund any excess, simply let me know in the notes. Please be aware that packages may take 4 weeks or more to arrive via ground. Alternatively, if you'd like expedited options please convo me for a quote.
Duties and taxes are your responsibility and cstoms tags will state the actual cost; no customs or duty fees are included in what you pay. International shipping times can vary greatly, especially overseas - please be patient if it seems to be taking longer than usual as it is likely that your package will eventually arrive.
I follow Canada Post's guidelines regarding lost packages, which is usually only considered so after 30 business days. Let me know if your package seems to be taking unusually long and I'll follow up from this side if at all possible, but PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU DO NOT CHOOSE TRACKED POSTAGE THERE IS LITTLE I CAN DO.
PayPal and the usual Etsy methods. Contact me directly if you are local and wish to arrange alternate payment.

I make every effort to represent the true colours of the yarn in the pictures but we all know that screens and monitors differ. If you are at all unsure about the colour please contact me and I will send more pictures and/or provide more details. My guess is that if you are shopping for hand dyed yarn you like colour and don't mind talking about it ad nauseum, like me. I want you to LOVE your yarn.
I consider one knot or join in a hank to be acceptable. I also may re-skein after photographing and prior to shipping if the hank became tangled.
If you are using multiple hanks of the same colourway I recommend you alternate every two rows or so, as even those from the same pot can differ noticeably. The individuality of each hank is part of the charm and beauty of small-batch hand dyed yarn.
To assure them a long, beautiful life, please hand wash and air dry your finished objects, regardless of the "superwash" designation.
My studio is in a smoke-free but dog-friendly home (the pooch is hypo-allergenic, regularly groomed and isn't generally interested in my yarn). Dyed hanks are stored in bags in closed plastic bins.
If you would like SQs or a specific colourway that isn't currently listed please don't hesitate to contact me. If you are interested in a colourway on a different base, I can usually do that, too - convo me.
