This sumptuously soft variegated sock yarn was created in response to an indie dyer challenge based on a picture of a tropical fish. In shades of green, hot pink, and orange, there is just enough fluorescent color to give it some pop and fun! Colorway: Island Girl 75% superwash merino wool, 25% nylon 100 grams, 3.5 ounces437 yards, 400 meters Theoretically superwash yarns can be machine washed on gentle cycle, and tumble dried on low. I strongly recommend hand washing in cold water and drying flat. This yarn has been dyed with professional acid dyes, heat set, and individually hand washed to exhaust excess dye. Even so....Bright colors, especially neons may bleed some the first few washes so take care! Individual results may vary. I try to keep a few skeins in stock. If so, your order will ship next business day. Otherwise, it will be dyed to order and processing time will be one week, in addition to shipping time. If you would like your yarn wound into a cake, just let me know, winding service is free!
