Only one burly spun skein, 120+ yards, 6.5 oz.

The Nereids are the fifty daughters of Nereus and Doris who dwell in the Mediterranean Sea. Beautiful, prophesizing women were friendly and helpful towards sailors fighting perilous storms. They live with their father in the depths deep within a silvery cave. Thetis, mother of Achilles, and Amphitrite wife of Poseidon are two of the better known Nereids.

This yarn is bright and stunning, with gorgeous hues of teal, turquoise, robin's egg, lapiz lazuli, sky blue, and more. Has a lovely sheen to it and the finish is quite nice.

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.
