Desert Cactus Hand Dyed Merino Wool Yarn Worsted Weight
Desert Cactus 165 yards 2.5 ounces Yarn
This yarn is spun from Merino wool. Merino wool is the softest wool fiber available and is very nice against the skin. The weight is Worsted with a gauge of 4-5 stitches to the inch on size 8 needles American. Yardage is 165 yards approx. Skein weight 2.5oz. approx.
The yarn is hand dyed by me in my lab just outside Phoenix, AZ. The color Desert cactus is inspired by the desert cacti that are found near my home. The color way is a mix of blush reds and pinks and sage, and cactus greens. I think it looks very much like the Prickly Pear cacti in the winter when they take on a red-ish hue to their flesh.
