This yarn is a Beautiful mix of pink and teal, with a hint of purple, where the two colors blended together. I used acid dyes to dye this Merino wool. It is 14 WPI which makes it DK weight yarn. It weighs 4.0 ounces and is 140 yards of soft, warm, colorful wool yarn.

I am giving away this yarn. If you would like to win this yarn the rules are simple.

I LOVE your yarn. I have never had handspun or hand dyed yarn before. I have been knitting for 2 years. Used to buy everything at the big chain stores. THEN, I discovered little independent yarn shops. Will never buy at the big stores again.

I am now headed over to your Etsy shop to see what all you have.
