GALADRIEL'S GIFT Hand-Dyed on Buttery Soft DK

Regular price $29.00

Quantity Available: 4

Galadriel's Gift is heavily speckled and will be an adventure to knit with every stitch different. The colors are sky blue, bright blue, spring green, lavender, a bit of yellow, a bit of chartreuse, and an abundance of blue and purple speckles.

As for the name, the colors remind me of a stunningly beautiful garden, and that made me think of the box of soil and seeds that Galadriel gave Sam in The Lord of the Rings which he used to replenish the Shire.

I dyed it on my Buttery Soft DK base, which is made of 45% baby alpaca, 45% extra-soft 19.5 micron merino, and 10% silk, and it really lives up to its name! 

Like most, this colorway is a little more muted on Buttery Soft DK than on many of my other yarn bases due to the alpaca and silk content.

Please note that this is NOT a superwash yarn. That means it can felt with agitation and changes in temperature, so it should be washed by hand in cool water. On the other hand, it can be fulled.
