This is a very special sock yarn that is both luxurious and hardwearing. It is a nice tight twist superwash merino/nylon/stellina sparkle blend, and would make any fingering-weight project very special! It would be perfect for socks, shawls, baby knits, or holiday knitting.
This colorway's name needs an explanation, so here goes: my husband is very "vanilla" in his appearance choices, and would rather I be the same. I, however, disagree and took his last trip to South Korea for work to get my hair dyed in an ombre of pink, purple, and peach. I nervously waited for him to arrive home, thinking there would be some sort of blowup, but he said nothing until we went to bed that night. While lying there in bed, he said "um... did you know your hair is a weird color?" to which I put on a huge act of saying "WHAAAAAT? What do you MEAN?!" (like I had no clue) and he said "Well I thought maybe you'd had a shampoo accident and didn't notice." (I truly had no idea I was such a good actress. Apparently I missed an awesome career opportunity.) So there you have it! The story of the colorway name, and something I will tease him about until death do us part. ;)
There are three skeins available in this dyelot. See the second picture for a swatch of this colorway knit up. 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.
