New Orleans Yarn - Hand Painted Yarn
The first image that comes to mind of New Orleans is Mardi Gras. A colorful parade of feathers and beads. However there is much more to the city than that one festival. So I used the Mardi Gras colors (purple, gold, and green) as the base and then muted them with deep plums and olives – the influence of jazz and voodoo. Laissez le bon temps roulez!

Yarn Details – Letter:
This next-to-skin soft base of 100% superwash merino wool is soft, durable, and sproingy. The tight twist makes it durable enough to handle socks while the springiness makes it soft enough to be appropriate for lace and other garments.

100% Superwash Merino Wool
3.5 oz / 400 yards / 100 grams
Fingering Weight
7-8 Stitches = 1” on #1-3 needles
Machine wash cold, lay flat to dry

All destination yarns are dyed with professional acid dyes for wash fast results. I am extremely careful to make sure that all of the dye is set, however as with any hand dyed yarn it is a good idea to hand wash items separately the first time just to be safe.

For other store information and policies see my profile and store policies sections.

Thanks for stopping by and happy travels!
