This yarn is dyed on my Queen’s Worsted base. Made of reliable, washable, 100% superwash merino, this worsted weight yarn is ready for any challenge. Like her sisters in the other weights, this yarn rules from on high with a gentle hand and a soft touch, feminine and strong at the same time. Perfect for next-to-skin knits like scarves, shawls, or baby items.
This colorway is tie-dyed and speckle dyed. This means the colors are applied in layers, with different parts of the yarn restricted in each layer so it doesn’t absorb the dye. After layers of dye is applied, it is then speckle dyed. It’s a fun method where dry dye powder is applied directly to wet yarn. The size of the sections will vary based on the colorway. What this means for your projects is there are more colors because of the overlapping as the dye is applied and they are less likely to pool and the speckles give a nice pop of color contracting the tie-dyed colors.
***Note: Some of these became tangled in the dyeing process. This usually does not happen to the extent that they need reskeining but some of these did. Some yarn may arrive reskeined but is the same colorway and dye lot as pictured.***

Though this yarn base can be washed by machine (cold water, gentle cycle), I always recommend hand washing your yarns & finished items for ultimate lasting quality. Use a gentle detergent or wool wash, then lay flat or pin to shape in order to block and dry the item. This yarn is a Queen after all; it deserves the royal treatment – and so do the items you’ll make with it!
