BLUE STEEL Wool/Tencel Sock Yarn Indie Kettle Dyed, Soft and Unique
As soon as this yarn came out of the dye pot, I knew its name...BLUE STEEL! Not quite blue, not quite gray, but very eye-catching.
Kettle Dyeing means each skein is unique; no two skeins are exactly alike. The yarn is made from recycled wool and Tencel (50/50). Tencel is a type of rayon made from plant cellulose. It wicks moisture better than cotton or hemp and is softer too.
Since Tencel is a plant based fiber, it does not take up the dye as strongly as the sheep wool does; this gives a heathered effect to the yarn and also a sheen similar to silk. Each skein is 383 yards/100 gms.
We recommend hand washing and air drying anything you make with this yarn.
*Listed price is for one hank of yarn.
