ALCHEMY Hand-Dyed Sock-Weight Yarn with Merino, Silk, and Cashmere

Regular price $29.00

When I made this gold yarn, I felt a bit like an alchemist from the Middle Ages or like the daughter in Rumpelstiltzken. This is a semi-solid yarn with a little bit of variation in the shades of gold.

I dyed this yarn on the same wonderful luxury base I used for my Odyssey collection, and this yarn is the same gold I used for Odysseus, Penelope, and Athena.

This sock-weight yarn is made of 70% superwash merino, 20% silk, and 10% cashmere. Personally, I would use it for a shawl or cowl or hat--something that really shows off the softness and color of the yarn.

The last photo shows the other colorways in The Odyssey Collection. You can see the whole collection here.

The yarn is priced per skein.

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 CAKE
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.
 
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.
 
Happy fiber artistry!
