Price per skein, approximately 115g (4.06 oz), 389m (426yd). 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon.

NEW! Dyeguy is trying out some new techniques and here's one of the first out of the kettle. Deep denim blue and bubblegum pink collide in places, giving tinges of plum and violet. There is a basic colour change about every 12 inches with random overlays and splashes for a sort-of-repeats-but-not-quite effect.

Price is per skein, approximately 115g (4.06 oz), 389m (426yd). 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon.

Haven't we all wanted to knit bumblebee socks?? Glowing yellow is combined with black - well, really a deep midnight green but it looks black from 5 feet away. Not self-striping like a wasp, this will more likely pool like the patterning on a fuzzy bumblebee.

Somewhat striping with soft pink and blue, streaked here and there with mauve, rose, violet, pale pink and a touch of white. When Hydrangeas are grown in neutral or slightly acidic soil sometimes they can't decide if they are pink or blue so they're somewhere in the middle.
