Fingering weight, 462yds./ 100 grams
the gauge on a US1 - 3 needle is 7 - 8 sts = 1"

The Name: Wild Strawberries

Have you ever had a strawberry cheesecake made with wild strawberries? When I was young, I helped my neighbor picked tiny little wild strawberries and she made the most delicious strawberry cheesecake. I can still remember how wonderful it was!

Superwash wool is machine washable - I recommend hand washing but if you like to machine wash please use the delicate cycle and lay flat to dry. I recommend washing items separately or hand washing for the first few washes as minimal color bleeding may occur.

A note about hand dyed yarn:

No two skeins are identical. If you are going to need more than two skeins for one project I will pick the skeins that are most alike and I recommend alternation skeins every two rows in your project so that the yarn will blend. :)

All yarn is from a smoke-free, cat-friendly environment, who is not allowed near the yarn.

Please remember that color differs from monitor to monitor.
