Designer Pack 90 Enya: Polar Caps & Dark Angel Isand, Odara: Turquoise - click for Yarn Bases
Colors: From the left, Polar Caps in cyans, blues, greys, and a touch of green, Turquoise in Odara which is hard to capture with a camera needs to been seen in real life, Dark Angel Island in greens, blues, and cyans was pulled from the orginal batch because it was a little bit darker but very rich and lovely. I put these three together because the turquoise and cyan colors work very well together. I wanted to design a large water inspired shawl with them, not enough time to knit and weave so my loss is your gain. Enjoy!
Enya Sock: 440 yards, 2 ply Fingering weight, 100% Superwash Merino. Our best seller. Super soft with extra twist for socks. I love the way this yarn dyes. The extra twist makes the dyes sparkle like little beads. Designed for socks but I love how it works for lace and tapestry weaving as well. You can use it for so much more than just socks.
Odara: Silk/Merino : 470 yards, 3 ply Fingering Weight, 50% Silk 50% Merino. It is so soft and silky. A joy to work with. Great for Lace knitting.
Handwash cool water, air dry flat.
I prefer to hand wash for longevity. Color bleeding can be normal for hand dyed yarns. I take special care when setting dyes and I thoroughly rinse the yarns. Blues and reds can be difficult to completely exhaust. A good tip is to add some distilled white vinegar to your final rinse water; it will stop the bleeding. I also recommend using a gentle wool wash such as Eucalan. I always use luke warm water for my knits and handwash even if it is superwash.
All of my yarns are dyed with professional dyes for light and wash fastness. I strive to take the best pictures possible but please remember that computer screens may vary with color.
