Description
"Wanderlust"
--------

This listing is for one skein of hand painted yarn in our Wanderlust colorway. I came up with the colorway before choosing the inspiration photo, and it reminded me of a Gypsy style wagon. I recalled a beautiful painting by Aimee Stewart called Wanderlust, and it fit the inspiration photo perfectly. The colors on this yarn feature a wide variety of purples, with pops of gold, burgundy, green, and turquoise.

The default base for this yarn is also one of my favorites - a single made out of 100% superwash merino in a glorious fingering weight yarn, perfect for an incredible shawl or pair of socks, but it can also be used in other projects as well. We also have a few skeins of this available on our sparkle gold or silver fingering weight yarn, which is shown in the photos so you can see what different bases look like. The shawl in the photo is made with the gold sparkle yarn base.

As with all of our variegated yarns, this can also be made into a long gradient by special request.
This yarn can also be made on any of our other bases , including Worsted, DK, lace weight yarns, and other fingering bases.
We are able to do this because we hand dye each order as it comes in- so all skeins are made to order. Every skein that you receive will look very similar to what you see in the photos, though no two skeins will be perfectly identical due to the way this colorway is dyed. If you plan to use multiple skeins for a project, please try to buy them all at once so we can make sure they match as much as possible.

Care:


Superwash merino is special because it is treated in such a way that it will not felt the way normal wool does, so it your stitches will remain crisp. That being said, we still suggest hand washing your item when you finish making it, and laying it flat to dry, just as you would with any hand made item.

As with all hand dyed items, we recommend hand washing your yarn/finished item in cool water and laying it flat to dry. We rinse this yarn until the water runs crystal clear, but small amounts of excess dye may rarely come off with the first couple of washings. If this happens, rest assured that it is only excess dye and should not affect the coloring of your yarn in any way. If a large amount of bleeding ever occurs with any of our items, please contact us so we can make it right. We always recommend hand washing hand made items to preserve the longevity of your beautiful work.
