Description

The “PORREE” colorway is a very light green dyed on a cream base of yarn with brown speckes (brown speckes tend to break while dyeing, because it’s not a primary color. This is why there might be additional blue or even pink spots, but in this case I only detected blue ones). In almost every meal my dad cooks, he likes to include Porree. So here it is. 😉

 

The photos have been taken with the colorway dyed on: Hazel Soft Sock (the swatch is knit out of Hazel Soft Sock as well)

 

Additional information and care instructions:

 

Each and every skein is a truly handmade product – from the handdyed skein to the yarnband and label design. We take great care in taking/editing the pictures of our products so they look as close to reality as possible – but please note that these are “catalogue pictures”, we don’t take pictures of each and every single skein of yarn but try to do our best to represent the colorway and it’s varieties in the photos we use (the representation obviously also depends on your screen/computer).

 

I dye in increments of 2-4 skeins per pot, so please make sure to attach a note with your order if you want to use your yarn for projects that use more than 1 skein per colorway, so I can make sure that those skeins come from the same dye batch. Depending on your gauge, pooling might still be possible, although I try my best to prevent that from happening with my dyeing techniques. I highly recommend alternating your skeins for multiple skein-projects!

 

For best results and long wear I recommend handwashing your knitted items – in cold to max. lukewarm water with wool wash. Lay flat to dry.
I am using professional acid dyes and citric acid to dye my yarns (vinegar for stellina yarn bases), but I make sure to soak and wash them with ecological wool wash (Ecover) after the dyes have set and rinse them until the water runs clear before drying. But because of the nature of some dyes (especially reds/ blacks/ turquoise/ blues), “bleeding” of excess dyes is still a possibility.
