Rare and Exotic Beast: Wild Sea - Hesperus

Regular price $38.00

Tax included.

This OOAK colour is a more gently variegated charcoal, blue and green. The skeins are mostly grey, with flashes of blue and smidges of green. They are all from the same batch, but due to the number of processes each skein is a little different. I recommend alternating skeins on bigger projects if you desire a more even result.

 

  **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!

Hesperus is a fuzzy blend of kid mohair bound with silk - perfect for adding a bit of fluff to your projects.

Excellent on its own for light as air accessories, or as a carry-along yarn.

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!
