This beautiful yarn is a high-twist single comprised of 100% superwash merino wool, and it showcases stitch definition perfectly- especially in lace knitting. It also takes dye in a really unique way.
This yarn was inspired by fabric designed by the renowned fabric designer Anna Maria Horner, and is now available directly from Unwind Yarn Company. It was based on the print “Echinacea” in the color story Dim, and features a charcoal background with orange and blue speckles. It is a speckled colorway and should not pool when knit. Please see the second picture for a swatch of this yarn knit up into a mitered square, and you can find the original fabric here: http://www.hawthornethreads.com/fabric/designer/anna_maria_horner/floral_retrospective/echinacea_in_dim.
There are two skeins available in this dyelot. Love the colorway, want a bigger lot, or just a different base? Place a custom order and I'll get on it right away!

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 let me know.
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.
