Sea Urchin is hand dyed on our Icebreaker, an incredibly soft, smooth single ply super bulky weight of merino-nylon blend. A lovely soft medium intensity purple with definite pink tones. The purple sea urchin, Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, lives along the eastern edge of the Pacific Ocean extending from Ensenada, Mexico to British Columbia, Canada. (Wikipedia) Icebreaker is about getting somewhere no matter how. Divide the seas, make a path & take it. This super bulky will have you creating a smooth, bold creation & getting back to what you were doing in no time. It feels luxurious, but its not, that's just the feeling of taking something practical & getting it done, feeling the adventure & seeing the end of the road. These two skeins were dyed together & are same dyelot. HOWEVER, if you choose to use them for the same project think about alternating rows, etc. as the dye process can still make these quite different from each other. Not to mention a variegated, or speckled process can take its own course. All yarn or project bag purchases INCLUDE $50 INSURANCE for US deliveries. Convo/Private Message me if you do not like this option. ****************************************************************** Colorway: SEA URCHIN Yarn Base: Icebreaker Super Bulky weight, 1-ply (single ply). 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon. 76 yards/ 100 gram skein. This is ready to ship, exact item is pictured. ******************************************************************** DO NOT machine wash, I *highly* recommend gentle hand washing to preserve the fibers, colors & your hours into your creation. No twisting/wringing or hot water. Single plys are not known for their ability to stand up to the intensity of a washing machine or machine dryer. See our Wool Wash Section: Yarn is hand dyed, variations can occur. I use professional acid dyes & I do not add anything to the process in terms of washes or scents. The whole process is done indoors at my home studio, it is not dried outside, although it is a cat-friendly, non-smoking place. **I do my best to accurately portray this yarn to my ability. Remember all monitors, all settings, etc. can change our view on the same picture. I am here if you have questions.** More information on the policies page.
