THE WINEDARK SEA Hand-Dyed Yarn on Wonderful Worsted

Regular price $27.00

Quantity Available: 1
Mentes I'm called, son of the veteran
Ankhialos; I rule seafaring Taphos.
I came by ship, with a ship's company,
sailing on the winedark sea for ports of call on alien shores....
--Athena, The Odyssey by Homer

This yarn was inspired by a really intriguing phrase from Homer's Odyssey. Apparently the ancient Greeks had no name or concept for the color blue. While pondering the idea for this colorway, a friend mentioned that on a recent trip to Greece, she noticed burgundy hues in the sea while aboard a sailboat.

I dyed this yarn on Wonderful Worsted, which is a squishy and round 4-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. It's great for sweaters, shawls, hats, and more.
