Does anyone else remember head to toe neon outfits from the 80s? Yikes.

This yarn however, is anything but yikes. Handpainted onto the softest fine Merino, this yarn is bright with tones of lilac, neon yellow, bright robin's egg blue, and neon green. Very whimsical and would look outstanding as doll hair or an amazing accessory like a cowl or felted bag. I would not however, recommend wearing an entire outfit comprised of these colors. Hee hee!

Only one skein, 100 yards, fine Merino, spun as a lofty super soft yarn, heavy bulky or burly spun thick and thin, I'd use big needles (something in the 11-15 range).

Each skein of yarn is a labor of love. Recycled or local roving is hand painted with low acid dyes, steamed, and cooled for 24 hours to ensure colorfast yarn and less environmental impact as no dye is being washed down the drain. The roving is drafted and spun on my dreamy Schacht Matchless wheel, wound onto the niddy noddy and fashioned into a skein. Next, I soak the skein of yarn in a spring water and organic grapefruit/eucalyptus essential oil rinse. At this point the wet skein is blocked (dried with weights or on a yarn blocker to remove overtwist) and finally stored, awaiting a new home.
