This listing is for one 100gram/257yard skein of the yarn shown in the first three photos and described below. This is a new yarn type for me, and I dyed up a variety of colorways that look great together. Photo 4 shows the two skeins of this batch next to two skeins of Sand and Sea Glass. The last photo shows those two plus two different batches of Oil Slick.

Mermaid's Grotto: A little like my "Where Mermaids Play" colorway, a little like my "Sand and Sea Glass" colorway, and a little like "Tide Pool", without the purples. This one has a wide range of sea greens and blues that blend with ochre, sky blue, tan and rich medium brown.

Yarn base is really lovely: It is a single spun (yes, one fat ply) of super soft and lux superwash merino. It feels a lot like Malabrigo, but it's superwash.

100% Superwash Merino DK
100 grams/257 yards
22stitches=4" on 4.0mm needles

Hand or machine wash gently in cool or lukewarm water. Lay flat to dry.

I hand-dye all my yarns one at a time, with care and attention to detail. I live in a non-smoking, dog/cat-free home.

Packages ship within three business days of receipt of payment. Please read my profile box for details on my policies.

I ship by Airmail to the US and Canada. Most packages arrive in one to two weeks.

**International/Overseas Buyers Only: Shipping rates listed are for Airmail. Surface/Ground takes two to three months, but Airmail typically takes one to three weeks. If you prefer the cheaper method of shipping and don't mind a really long wait, I can refund you the difference between Airmail and surface and ship it that way instead. Surface rates are usually the same as those listed to the US.
