"Moria Tonals- Mini Skein Set"
This set was dyed to match/complement our Moria variegated yarn colorway (shown in the last photo), but can also be used all by itself.
The colors within the set include a dark maroon red/Cabernet, warm chocolate brown, brownish green, dark slate blue, and warm grey that's almost purple. These are true tonals with some light and dark variation within each skein, but solid enough that they could easily be used in colorwork designs.
Each skein is 20 grams, so this gives you 100g total to play with.
By default, this is dyed on our high twist version of our Squishy Sock base which is 85/15 Ultra Fine Superwash Merino/Nylon 2 ply. Each 20g mini skein is 89 yards, giving you 400 yards total to work with.
We can dye this set on any of our other bases by custom order.
Every skein that you receive will look very similar to what you see in the photos (really, there isn't much variation with solids), but please keep in mind that we dye every order as it comes in and some variation is still possible. And as always, while we take multiple photos to show the yarn in various lights, all monitors can display color differently so please keep that in mind.
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.
We recommend using cool water and a neutral soap (if any), such as baby shampoo, when blocking your finished item if you are knitting or crocheting it. We do not recommend soaking the yarn to set it or block it, as it's not necessary.
