This yarn is a lovely 4ply dk weight yarn, made out of soft and squishy 100% superwash merino wool. I test knit all yarns before adding them to my line, and I honestly think that this is the best DK weight yarn on the market right now. It showcases both lace and cables beautifully when knit, and holds its shape with blocking and wearing.
This colorway was the February 2013 installment of the 2 Crafty Girls Club from Unwind Yarn Company and is called Birth of Venus. This colorway was dyed to honor the painting Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli and features shades of light blue, gold, brown, green, and rusty red. This is a kettle dyed yarn and should not pool when knit.
There is one skein remaining in this dyelot.

As with any hand dyed yarn, variations between skeins can happen even in the same dyelot. I always recommend alternating skeins in a project to minimize any noticeable differences.
After dyeing, I always rinse my items once in cool water; be aware that some dye leakage may still happen when the item is washed for the first time, but is not indicative of color fading.
Any purchase of 2 or more mailable items from my shop will receive an organic lavender sachet in their package. If you would prefer not to receive a sachet for allergy or other reasons, please leave me a note.
Please keep in mind that I try my best to photograph my items carefully, and that the colors are correct on my monitor.... however, there might be a slight variation between my monitor and yours.
