Dendrobium Orchid is a beautiful speckled sock yarn reminiscent of tropical orchids. Bold and bright pinks and purples of all shades mix with blue-green speckles on a soft white base. The base used is my super soft sock fingering base, with 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon. Superwash merino is soft, squishy and will not felt and nylon lends strength, perfect for long lasting socks and other other projects.
Each skein has been hand painted or dyed by me with acid dyes, then carefully rinsed to remove any excess dye. Though this base is a superwash base and is machine washable, I highly recommend hand washing hand knit items in cool water with wool wash for longevity. As is with most hand dyed yarns, a small amount of dye may come out when it is washed, but should not affect the color of the yarn. My studio is based in my home, which is a pet and smoke free environment. I ship orders within one to two business days.
