Description

Green yarn to the win

Neptune is a moody, rich blue and violet yarn with enough speckles to keep your eyes interested when knitting and after you’ve finished your project. It is dyed in my Gaia Sock base, which is a great squishy all-rounder for any type of project asking for sock weight wool.

At 464 yards or 425 meters, it’s got enough length for a pair of socks or, if you’ve got small feet like I do, a pair of socks and some wrist warmers.

Because designer indie-dyed yarns are created in small batches, differences are to be expected between them (and often even in the same batch). Because of this, I advise you buy as many skeins as needed for your project and alternate them to avoid pooling and colour mismatches. Find out more in our Fibre Bases and Info page.

Please the gods and take this Neptune home.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Keep yarn in a dry room away from direct sunlight. Airtight boxes are recommended. Don’t place anything heavy on top of the skein to avoid squishing it.
  • I recommend adding lavender sachets to the storage container for pest prevention.
  • Hand wash your finished product separately using wool-specific detergents, dry flat. Hand dyed fibres may bleed a little in the first couple of washes.
