Item details

This is a repeatable colorway, so if you'd like more than I already have dyed, I can! Just choose Dyed to Order and the quantity. I usually can dye-to-order quickly. Please allow an extra 2-3 days.

One of three colors from my Spring 2017 collection of mineral inspired colorways. Calcite is a common mineral. It's formula is CaCO3 and will fizz if you put even a weak acid on it. Limestone, the well known building material, is mainly calcite. It is usually clear, but impurities can change it's color. I happen to like this one because mineral identification was not my strongest subject in undergrad geology, but drop a bit of hydrochloric acid on the sample and I knew pretty quickly what it was if it fizzed. :)

This color, on this base, is yellow with a subtle tend towards lime green perhaps with a gray overtone. It's not dull but it's also more complex than an in-your-face sunny yellow.

The yarn base is a dreamy fine merino blended with silk.

This comes from a smoke free, cat friendly home. The little monster is kept away from the studio and the yarn is stored in plastic bags and a sealed tote.
I use acid dyes for these colors. Please handle gently. While this is superwash, I do not recommend washing in hot water. Although this yarn has been washed, please expect a bit of shrinkage. I don't expect any color loss, but if you use really hot water, it may happen

Colors vary from screen to screen of course. If you have any questions please ask.

I strive for perfection, but if you are not happy for any reason please let me know within 5 days of receiving the yarn. I will be happy to refund you minus shipping costs.


FAQs

Although I do sell and use superwash wools that can handle a gentle cycle and cool dry I recommend hand washing handmade pieces to ensure it has a long life

Please tell me if this is being sent directly to someone as a gift. I will be happy to omit the invoice and add a gift card. Just tell me what you'd like the card to say.

Some of my colorways are repeatable and I have access to many different yarn bases. Please convo me if there is a color and yarn/fiber you'd like. Of course, please allow for an increased processing time. I am happy to take custom weaving orders! Convo me and we can talk about timing and scope!

If the option isn't in the listing just convo me. I'll get it to you :)
