This yarn is a nice tight twist superwash merino/cashmere/nylon blend, and would make any fingering-weight project very special! It would be perfect for socks, shawls, baby knits, or holiday knitting. 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. Please see the second picture for an example of this colorway knit up into the Birth of Venus Cowl by Karalee Harding, which was designed for this colorway (although pictured on a different base). There are two skeins available in this dyelot. Treat yourself today!

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.
