This is a Natural, botanical dyed sock weight yarn in my 'Mermaid' colourway, using Indigo, Alkanet and Logwood. Mermaid is a Self-striping yarn in semi-solid turquoise blue and mid violet purple, and is part of my 'Mythology' colourway series.
This is dyed on my 'Cottage' base. It is a springy soft 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Bamboo fingering weight yarn which is ideal for socks, shawls and lightweight garments.
All yarn is hand dyed, so there may be some variation between skeins. If you buy more than one skein, they will be from the same dye lot. The colours may vary when viewing the listing on different monitors compared to the true colour although I try to ensure that my photos are as close to the product as possible.
This yarn has been dyed with natural, botanical dyes in a smoke free, cat friendly environment. To avoid accidental felting of the yarn it needs to be hand washed in cool water, I hand rinse my yarn until the water runs clear however, it is recommended that you wash items made with this yarn separately when washing for the first time in case some colour bleeding occurs.
If you see a anything you would like in a larger quantity, let me know and we can discuss the possibility of a custom dye lot.
