ALCHEMY - Dyed to Order

Regular price $25.00

Quantity Available: 8
In the Middle Ages, alchemists would attempt to turn lesser metals into gold. Well, Alchemy is my attempt to turn wool into gold! This is a deep gold colorway--sort of an antique gold.

Alchemy would go beautifully with Eowyn's Mantle and West Fork in Autumn.


HOW DYED TO ORDER WORKS

If you see a colorway you love but need it on a different yarn base or need more than I have in stock, you have come to the right place. I will happily dye up as many skeins as you need on the base of your choice.

Please keep in mind that every skein will look a little different, and while the photos are a good representation of the yarn colorway, there will be differences depending on the yarn base and many other factors. That's the joy of hand-dyed yarn. That said, it is best to order all that you'll need for your project at the same time since the yarn dyed all at once will look most similar.

TIMELINE
Please allow 2-3 weeks for me to order your yarn, dye it, allow it to dry, and ship it.

If you order other yarn or fiber that is ready to ship at the same time, I will ship your whole order together. If you would prefer to have the ready-to-ship items sooner, please order them separately.

YARN BASES
You can learn about all of my different yarn bases below including their weight, yardage, and care.

Alpaca Lace Cloud - This is a wonderfully soft and fuzzy textured yarn made of 74% baby suri alpaca and 26% silk. It comes in 50 gram or 1.75 ounce skeins with 328 yards each. It should be washed by hand in cold water and air dried. It takes the dye at a medium intensity. Uses: Knit, Crochet, and Weft in Weaving.

Sock Perfection -
I have finally found the perfect yarn base for actual socks! It is a fingering weight that combines 80% extra-fine 19.5 micron superwash merino with 20% nylon. It's a good solid 4-ply yarn that comes in 100 gram skeins with 450 yards per skein. It can be machine washed on cold and air dried. It tends to take the dye rather brightly. Uses: Knit, Crochet, Warp and Weft in Weaving.

Sparkly Merino Sock - This 4-ply yarn is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% lurex. There's enough lurex to really sparkle without compromising the softness of the merino. The neat thing about lurex is that the sparkle shows even more on darker colorways. This comes in extra-large 115 gram or 4-ounce skeins with a total of 409 yards, so it's on the heavier side of fingering weight. Sparkly Merino Sock tends to dye up brightly. This can be hand washed or washed on a gentle cycle in the washing machine on cold. It should be laid flat to dry. Uses: Knit, Crochet, and Weft in Weaving.

Cashmere Sock - Cashmere Sock is a lovely luxury yarn perfect for everything from shawls to socks. It's made of 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% nylon. It's a 4-ply yarn with 435 yards per skein. It tends to take the dye at a medium level. I recommend washing it by hand for greatest longevity. Uses: Knit, Crochet, Warp and Weft in Weaving

So Silky Sock - This yarn is lusciously soft! It's a 4-ply made of 50% mulberry silk and 50% superwash merino. It comes in 3.5 ounce or 100 gram skeins with a total of 438 yards per skein. So Silky Sock tends to dye up fairly softly. I recommend washing it by hand in cold water because of the silk content, though there's nothing that will felt in this yarn. Uses: Knit, Crochet, Warp and Weft in Weaving

Dream Sock - Dream Sock is luxury yarn at its finest. All of my yarns are lovely and soft, but this one is like stroking a purring kitten. It is a sock-weight yarn base made of 70% baby alpaca, 20% silk, and 10% cashmere. It should be washed by hand in cold water and air dried. Uses: Knit, Crochet, and Weft in Weaving.

Super Sport - Super Sport is a lovely, soft yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. It's great for winter socks as well as shawls, sweaters, hats, and more. It's a 3-ply yarn with great stitch definition, and it comes in 100 gram skeins with 328 yards per skein. It can be machine or hand washed in cold water and air dried. It dyes up at a medium level. Uses: Knit, Crochet, Warp and Weft in Weaving.

Buttery Soft DK - This is a wonderfully soft 2-ply DK base with great stitch definition. It's made of 45% extra-fine merino (non-superwash), 45% baby alpaca, and 10% silk. It is a dream to work with! Each 100 gram skein contains 245 yards. This should be washed by hand in cold water and dried flat. Buttery Soft DK dyes up softly. Uses: Knit, Crochet, Warp and Weft in Weaving.

Squoosh DK  - Squoosh DK is a squishy, soft, stretchy yarn made of 100% extra-fine superwash merino. It's a 4-ply yarn that comes in extra-large 115 gram skeins with 250 yards. This can be machine or hand washed in cold water but should be air dried. Uses: Knit, Crochet, Warp and Weft in Weaving.

Wonderful Worsted -
 Wonderful Worsted is a 100% superwash merino worsted-weight yarn that comes in 100 gram skeins with 218 yards per skein. It's a nice round and very squishy 4-ply yarn that's great for hats, sweaters, shawls, and more. This base can be machine or hand washed in cold water but should be air dried. It dyes up at a medium intensity. Uses: Knit, Crochet, Warp and Weft in Weaving.

Quick and Cozy Bulky - This is a soft and squishy bulky-weight yarn made of 100% superwash merino wool. It's a 3-ply yarn with great stitch definition, and it comes in 3.5 ounce/100 gram skeins with 106 yards each. It can be washed by hand or machine on cold and air dried.
