This colorway is called Faerie Shadow. It is a variegated skein with a gray base and speckles of a dark green, bright purple and black.
The BFL Sock base is a 2 ply fingering weight yarn composed of the following:
80% Superwash BFL Wool
Approximately 400 yards per 100 grams.
The yarn is dyed with acid dyes. All dyes are set and the finished yarn has been washed and rinsed. It is recommended that you presoak the yarn before beginning your project as some excess dye may rinse out. The photos provide an accurate representation of the colors on my screen. Please be aware that not all devices are the same and the yarn you receive could have a slight difference than the image you see on the screen.
For the best care, handwashing is recommended. However, the yarn can be washed in cool water on a gentle cycle. Lay flat to dry.
Your skeins may be reskeined prior to packaging. This means that I take the dyed skein and run it back onto my swift into a new skein. Sometimes I do this if it became tangled during dyeing. The result will be the colors will shuffle and so they may not lie as they do in the photo. I will do my best to add photos of reskeined skeins as I can. If you have any questions, please contact me!
As with all hand dyed yarn, it is recommended that you alternate skeins. Even with the custom skein sizing, you may need or choose to work with multiple skeins. For knitters, I recommend the helical knitting method to avoid a seam.
The swatch shown in the photos is an example of what your skein will look like knit up. Keep in mind this can change based on gauge, pattern and the dyed skein.
