RIVENDELL Hand-Dyed Yarn on Donegal Sock

Regular price $26.00

Quantity Available: 4

Rivendell was inspired by that beautiful peaceful respite from The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien said it was the perfect place whether you preferred reading or conversation or doing nothing at all. Doesn't that sound heavenly? Can we bring our knitting needles and crochet hooks? :-)

The colors include burgundy rose, peach, blue, lilac, and a soft green that predominates.

I dyed it this time on my Donegal Sock yarn base, which has small neutral-colored nebs that don't take dye. While this is a superwash yarn and therefore could be machine washed, I think it will last longer and look better if it is hand-washed because of the nebs.

    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!

    HANK OR CAKEUnless 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.

    MY GIFT TO YOU
    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.
