ColorMix DK is a 2-ply, DK/light worsted weight yarn consisting of 100% Superwash Merino wool. It is hand dyed first and then spun into yarn on worsted machinery, resulting in a yarn that is light, airy, and bouncy. This yarn will squish and bloom depending on your gauge and knitting/crochet style. It's on the heavier side of DK weight, so the yarn also works well for some patterns calling for worsted weight, and needle sizes up to a US 9. ColorMix DK is super soft and perfect for all items including baby blankets and next-to-the-skin garments. Machine wash on cold, or hand wash. The last photo is to show you an example of how these yarns work up, and is not included in this sale.
Due to the nature of how this yarn is dyed (kettle dyed first, then spun into yarn), color placement and intensity will vary between skeins, and within the skein itself. The yarn you receive may look slightly different than those in the photo. This is something that cannot be controlled, and is the beauty of this type of yarn. Let yourself go and allow the yarn to do it's magic! When ordering multiple skeins, I will try to select skeins that are the closest match to one another. If you have a preference -- darkest, lightest, one showing the most of a certain color, please write it in the notes and I will do my best.
Yarn Hero's ColorMix line is a unique dyed-in-the-wool yarn that works up into long gradients and/or stripes of color. Just as the name implies, ColorMix utilizes optical blending within the strand to create a wide range of color blends. Unlike hand-painted yarn, the colors will shift, marl, stripe, and shift back again. Each skein is a one-of-a-kind, even when from the same dye lot. It is suggested you make sure to purchase enough skeins for your project from the same dye batch, as colors can and will vary from batch to batch.
Hand dyed by me in a smoke-free, yet pet friendly home.
A note about the milling process.
All ColorMix yarns are milled in a small, family-run US mini mill. This means that the yarns are created by hand in small batches on simple cottage industry equipment. Due to this, there will be small variances in the thickness of the yarn throughout the skein, as well as the occasional slub or join where the spinning machine "burped" while in the middle of the run. :)
