Peacock is a rich, deep, and brilliant colorway. The predominant color is a bright blue, and there are accents in eggplant, chartreuse, teal, kelly green, midnight blue, white, and sky blue. I also added an abundance of speckles to this one.
I dyed these using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein will have the same colors but different color placement, so each skein will be an adventure to knit or crochet or weave with.
I dyed it on Squoosh DK, which is a wonderfully soft and squishy DK-weight yarn made of extra-fine superwash merino. The yarn is priced per skein.

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!
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.
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.
