Throughout the month of February I have challenged myself to share a new colourway every day with a specific prompt for the inspiration. The list of prompts comes from a previous year’s Inktober challenge called Creature Feature.
Day Seventeen is Metal + Snake. This colourway takes inspiration from the metallic reflections on certain snakes scales creating rainbows as well as albino snakes and their pinkish colouring. I’ve included some grey in the colourway to introduce the metallic aluminium imagery also.
This is a ready to ship listing that will ship within 1-2 weeks.
My yarn is hand-dyed using professional acid dyes. Due to the nature of hand-dyeing no two skeins will be alike however I do take evert effort to ensure colour ways are consistent. If you are looking for a greater quantity and want to ensure best chances of consistency please get in touch to arrange a custom order. I would recommend this if ordering quantities greater than 3.
I ensure each skein is washed after dyeing to ensure water runs clear, little dye running may remain however so I do recommend you take care when washing any finished objects. I recommend a gentle wool wash and cold water, do not rub the yarn aggressively as this may felt it unintentionally. Reshape finished objects whilst damp and lay flat.
