Superwash on Sale! Was $30.00, now $22.50.

Mars, the god of war, the father of the Roman people, the red planet, the inspiration for this yarn, is typified by red…and this is red. Even with the mitigation of the a little dark maroon and black, the brilliance of the underlying red is supreme. A hiking vest made of this would make one visible in the woods. Definitely for someone who likes red.

If you need additional yardage in this colorway, the companion yarn "Mars Too" offers a further 270 yards.

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, with a total weight of approximately 4.7 ounces, spun at an average of 1020 ypp (yards per pound). The yardage for this skein is approximately 300 yards.

Spongy with some sheen this yarn wraps at 8-10. Superwash, though not harsh, has a wooly texture that might not be appropriate for extremely sensitive skin.

See my Store Policy FAQs section for further knitting gauge suggestions for various yard weights, a bit about sheep breeds and yarn softness and care instructions for different fibers.

My skeins are wound on a full 2-yard niddy-noddy. If you don’t have a large swift, let me know. Spun in a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
