Rare and Exotic Beast: Dusk at the Tide Pool - Urchin

Regular price $35.00

Tax included.

This OOAK colour is a very dark, matt blackened teal-brown-greyish sort of colour. Some skeins have more lighter flashes than others! All skeins were in the same pot, but due to the number of processes, they are all quite different. :) I strongly advise alternating on larger projects if a more even result is desired. 

(This is a very saturated colourway. I have washed it and the rinse water is clear. However, as water and washing method may vary,  if you're planning on using with a lighter colour, I would recommend knitting a small test swatch with all the colours you're using, and wash and block in the usual way. Cold water and a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid is a good bet!)

Urchin is smooth and plump – a softly spun three ply construction. The lurex is spun in as an extra ply, (different from the stellina yarns available). It’s great for garments and accessories. While it has nylon content, I'm not yet sure about its durability for socks. As soon as I have more information, I'll update here!

I try hard to take photos that accurately represent the colour of the yarn, but please note that screens all show colour a little differently. If you have questions about colours, please ask, and I will do my best to describe them for you!
