Hand-Dyed Yarn Skein: Magnolia


Magnolia is a mixture of peachy pinks, cream, and mauve, lightly speckled with midnight blue, deep yellow, olive green, and burgundy.

I've dyed it on a well-twisted 3-ply fingering-weight base of 90% Targhee wool and 10% nylon produced in the United States. Color strikes cleanly and clearly on this base, which makes a soft but very reliable fabric without a lot of halo or drape.

After dyeing, I rinse all yarns in cool water then soak them with Eucalan wool wash.

This is superwash yarn. Nevertheless, I recommend hand-washing in cool water and laying flat to dry out of direct sunlight.
