Oh, my goodness! I love this colorway so much! The colors include magenta, teal, several shades of blue, chartreuse, mocha, dark purple, and lots of silver. There is a wonderful depth to this colorway that is really lovely.
I dyed Misty Mountains on my Buttery Soft DK yarn base, which is made of 45% baby alpaca, 45% extra-soft merino, and 10% silk. This is so incredibly soft!
Please note that this is NOT a superwash yarn.
The last photo shows a sample I knit up from this yarn.
FYI, I ordinarily just dye one batch at a time, but I have two different "dye lots" of this with 3 skeins of each. One has more magenta while the other has more gray. If you have a preference, please let me know.

PROCESS AND PACKAGING
Each skein of yarn is spun or dyed by me with loving care and contains a label with the yarn facts shown above. Your yarn is wrapped in tissue paper and shipped promptly, making a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite fiber artist--even if that happens to be you!
Unless otherwise specified, your yarn will come as a hank, which is basically a large loop. This is the best way to store yarn because there’s no tension being placed on it. Before you begin to use it, however, you will need to wind it into a ball or cake or you will end up with a tangled mess. The best way to do this is with a swift and ball winder. However, you can use the arms of a patient friend or just put your yarn over two dining chairs back to back and wind it into a ball by hand. If you don’t have a swift and you plan to use the yarn fairly soon, I would be happy to wind your yarn into a cake for you at no extra charge. Just mention it in your note to seller when you check out.
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
