You’re sure to have an adventure in Sherwood Forest with this yarn.
This yarn is dyed on my Phoenix Feathers DK base. The power & memory of merino combines with the shine of silk to make a yarn that’s sure to put on a good show. Add a little bit of luxury to your knitting projects with this rare beauty.
This colorway is tie-dyed and speckle dyed. This means the colors are applied in layers, with different parts of the yarn restricted in each layer so it doesn’t absorb the dye. After layers of dye is applied, it is then speckle dyed. It’s a fun method where dry dye powder is applied directly to wet yarn. The size of the sections will vary based on the colorway. What this means for your projects is there are more colors because of the overlapping as the dye is applied and they are less likely to pool and the speckles give a nice pop of color contracting the tie-dyed colors.
Details: This listing is for one skein of yarn in the Sherwood Forest colorway, dyed on the Phoenix Feathers DK base.
