High Dive: The color of the light reflecting off the swimming pool in the heat of summer, a gentle coolness while you float the lazy day away, beverage of choice in hand. Particularly beautiful in Ethereal, this pale aqua pairs perfectly with Plumage.
Ethereal Yarn Base- 100% Mulberry Silk Laceweight 2-ply 875 yards per 100 g
Colors glow and flash like the Aurora Borealis in this delicate but strong 100% mulberry silk 2-ply lace weight yarn. Perfect for shawls, cowls, light wraps, or weaving – and for the best effect, highlight the sheen of this yarn with glimmering beads.
Please note: Silk yarn prefers to be hand wound, or at least to have a core (a toilet paper tube works well) on the ball winder to support the center of the yarn so it doesn’t collapse. Also, be aware that silk tends to have a bit more of a tendency to bleed slightly when soaked for too long, in water that is too warm, or water that is too hard (alkaline). When one respects the way silk behaves, it is an incredibly rewarding fiber.
This is small-batch, hand dyed yarn. Skeins of one dye lot were dyed together, but will have natural variations. I recommend alternating skeins if you are making a project that takes more than one skein of yarn. Colors on your monitor may or may not accurately portray the yarn color, since individual monitors may display color differently from Real Life. Up to 4 skeins in any one dye lot.
I highly recommend hand washing your finished project in cool water and then laying flat to dry. As thorough as I am with rinsing, some color can escape for the first wash or two. Wash alone, or at least with like colors.
This yarn is from a smoke-free home, but I do have pets. A random cat or dog hair may accompany your yarn, although I try to prevent it.
