Hand dyed worsted wool blend yarn in "Ghost Shrimp"

Hiding in burrows beneath the sea, the Ghost shrimp (Neotrypaea californiensis) is a beautiful shade of orangish-pink with white specks, just like this yarn. There is nothing else shrimpy about this yarn, though. There is plenty of yardage in this skein for a slouchy beret or little baby sweater. The white patches make a lovely random pattern of speckles when it is knitted up. The acrylic mix makes this yarn soft yet strong; it will take a beating and still look great, which makes it great for kids' items or other durable stuff.

This is a multi-ply worsted weight yarn.
Fiber: 50% acrylic, 40% wool, 10% nylon
Yardage: 200 meters
Weight: 3.5 oz
Needles: US 7

All of my yarns are unique and dyed one at a time with non-toxic dyes.
