This is a Patreon Inspired colorway, created from by a photograph sent in from Julia of her lovely Spring Garden. Click through the photos to see the photograph and the yarn together.
In the photo were brightly coloured tulips; yellow, purple, orange and red, and also a white blossoming plant. So my plan with this one was to use lots of speckles for the tulip colours, and then mix in some greens for the foliage, but also keep some of the yarn undyed for the blossom.

This skein has all the soft and breathable qualities of merino but with the added durability of nylon, making it perfect for sock knitting, or for projects that require that extra bit of robustness.
The merino yarn has been treated with a superwash which is a process used to flatten out the yarn scales, making them less prone to felting. This means that the yarn can be machine washed, although we do recommend handwashing your hand-knits if possible.
