Item details

{{Octopus' Garden}}

"I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade...."

This song captured my imagination as a child. Just imagine what it would be like in an octopus' garden underneath the sea!

This bright and lively colorway was inspired by my vision of this encounter. Electric green algae would undulate across the inky black cave entrance as a cheerful purple octopus would appear in the turquoise waters to invite us in for tea.

Gorgeous and playful on its own, "Octopus' Garden" would also be a lovely counterpoint to rich semi-solids in coordinating colors. Dyed on the springy Vivacious 2-ply it would make a fantastic pair of socks, fingerless gloves/mitts, or anything else you might dream of creating.


> Vivacious
> 2-Ply Fingering/Sock weight
> 80% Superwash Merino Wool/20% Nylon (Polyamide)
> Suggested needle size: 1-3 US (2.25 - 3.25 mm)
> 353 yds (325 m) per 100g (4oz) skein
> Soft and springy yarn with a nice twist. Merino makes it soft, while the addition of nylon makes it sturdy enough for socks.


Hand or machine wash cold. Items may be tumble dried on low however, I suggest air drying your finished garment to preserve the integrity of the yarn, dyes, and your garment.


Due to the nature of hand dyeing, no two skeins will be identical. Please keep this in mind when purchasing yarn for a project. It is suggested that you alternate skeins every few rows to subtly blend in any differences between your hand-dyed skeins. As well, colors viewed on computer monitors can vary widely. I do my best to represent my colors as accurately as possible, but there may be a slight difference between the colors you see on your monitor and what you view in real life.

In order to provide you with the best possible knitting experience, I re-skein all of my yarns before sending them to you, ensuring a tangle-free winding session.


Do you need a special gift for a knitting friend or swap pal? Though I always send my yarns wrapped carefully, I am happy to add some special tissue paper, ribbon, and a card if you'd like to send this as a gift. Please just leave me a note at checkout letting me know where you'd like your gift sent!
