This skein was created as a test to see if I could dye a 24 stripe yarn because I really wanted to do an Advent skein this year. I was so happy it was possible and this skein was the first color way to be dyed as a 24 stripe. Hence the name, Experiment 24!
These are dyed on my Serendipity base and there are two 50 gram skeins to make sock knitting easier if you want them to match.
75% Superwash Merino / 25% Nylon
Approximately 460 Yards Fingering Weight
Approximately 100 grams - 4 ply
This listing is for a beautiful skein of self striping yarn in a fingering weight. It is hand dyed by me with professional acid dyes. I use citric acid and each skein is steamed or heat set to set the dye and also washed in cool/cold water with Eucalan. I do my absolute best to ensure there is no additional dye run off, however depending on how you care for your yarn and knitted things, results can vary.
All self stripping yarns are dyed in sets, so there “may” be a slight variation between batches . I take all measures to avoid differences but after all, I am human, and science isn’t always perfect :) Also, different bases may take color differently and containers of the actual dye can vary from container to container.
Hand wash in cool water with wool wash. I use Eucalan, but just make sure it's made for wool for lasting knits. Please know that sometimes when using wool wash, there will be some dye run off, especially if you use too much!! Not to worry, just rinse in cool water until the water runs clear.
Superwash is made to be able to wash in a washing machine and dried in a dryer. However for best results, I recommend hand washing, or at least laying flat to dry. This preserve the life of the yarn.
Please know that I do have cats and dogs in my home. They are not around the things I sell however I cannot guarantee that there won’t be a hair found in the item from just being on my person. Or for that matter one of my own hairs.. LOL. So if you are highly allergic to either cats or dogs, please take caution.
I do my best to represent the yarn in photos. All photos are taken in natural light, however all monitors vary in color. If you absolutely dislike the skein you receive, please contact me for a resolution prior to caking the yarn.
Do you have questions or did I miss something? Please send me a message and I'll happily reply as soon as I can!
