This yarn reminds me of California.... the Golden Gate Bridge, the spectacular sunsets, the night sky in Big Sur, and of course the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy the colors of California as you knit!
All of my yarn is hand dyed by me. I dye all of my yarn and fiber using Eco-Friendly dyes and I set the color with steam and Citric Acid. I carefully mix all of my colors to create the color ways you see.

Merino is considered the royal family of the wool world. In the 12th and 13th century Spanish royalty started importing rams from what is today Morocco to breed with their finest sheep and the Merinos were the amazing result. The Merinos were named after the African tribe Beni-Merines. The Merino has a small body but it grows a very dense, fine fleece with a regular crimp. Merino wool has a wide range of wool spanning from finest to coarsest it ranges from 11.5 microns to 26 microns.
I dye the yarn in batches of 3 to 6 skeins at a time so the dye lots are the same for each color way but of course all hand dyed yarn is different one skein to another.
Allegheny Fiber Arts is a smoke free but pet friendly home. My Pugs and two cats are kept away from the yarn though!
