One of my favorite memories of visiting my grandparent's house growing up was jumping on the trampoline and swimming in their backyard pool. We would play so hard that we would constantly be hungry and when we would go inside to beg for food Grandma would say "you're not hungry, you're just bored". Maybe that was true and maybe it was not. Regardless we figured out two ways to get snacks. 1. Pick fresh cherries from the trees in her back yard when they were in season. 2. Sneak into the basement freezer and find the bags full of pitted, frozen cherries to pilfer. She probably wondered why the bags were half empty when it was time to use them.
My grandmother recently passed away, and this is my nod to one of my favorite memories of her.
Ready To Ship! This listing is for 1 skein of hand dyed yarn. Flat shipping fee of 3.95 within the U.S. 5.95 Canada, and $13 International.
463 yards/100 grams
75% superwash merino/25% nylon
4 ply yarn with just the right amount of twist for a strong, but still soft and beautiful finished project.
Even though I purposefully dye my yarn to avoid pooling, flashing, and striping, if you are making a project that uses more than one skein of yarn, please alternate skeins every 2 rows to assure an even distribution of colors.
Every skein of yarn is completely unique and cannot be replicated entirely. If you would like to knit a large project please request to a "dye to order" listing so that all of the yarn you need can be dyed at the same time.
This yarn is superwash yarn and it is safe to wash it in a machine using cold water and a gentle cycle. Please lay your finished items flat to dry. I recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry to preserve the colors of hand dyed yarn.
Dyed with professional acid dyes and the highest quality base yarns I can source in a smoke/pet free dye studio.
