This listing is for Week Two of my 52 Weeks of Yarn Club - called Solariicybin.
Inspired by the book and film Solaris (by Stanislaw Lem), the main character in the story experiences a number of hallucinations of his wife while in space nearby a mysterious planet. Artists rendering of the planet feature heavy pinks and purples. I’ve given this colourway a mushroom inspired twist with reference to potential mind-altering qualities as it’s likely fungi on this planet would cause such experiences.
The 4ply Fingering Weight is 100g, 420m of 75% merino wool 25% nylon.
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.
My yarn is hand-washed with a gentle wool wash before shipping.
