Otter al Fresco in Superwash Merino DK Light Worsted OOAK
Opps this is out of stock but if you would like a similar product please check out my Custom Dyeing page.
We have 2 skeins of Superwash Merino Double Knitting dk available to purchase immediately. Each skein is 100g and 225m. This colourway is a base of tonal brown and white with dashes of bright purple and rich blue. It is reminiscent of a brown and white otter eating a purple sea urchin in the blue surf. This is an OOAK (One of a Kind) dye lot.

I am a crocheter and knitter myself so I only use the best of the best when it comes to making hand dyed yarn. These yarns are hand dyed with professional grade acid dyes and then rinsed after the dyeing process. Please check the label for washing instructions when possible it is preferable to hand wash to preserve the colour. Please be aware that there may be a small amount of dye bleeding out in the first wash (although this is unusual because I am very thorough with my rinsing). Drying in direct sunlight can also fade the colour over time, so where possible, please avoid.
Buying local and supporting emerging trade is very important to the ideals of The Mermaids Purse Yarns. My vegan friendly cotton is sourced from Three Bears Yarn. Not only are they a emerging British company, they have found a way to make cotton that doesn't split. My animal yarns are sourced from Rooster Yarns. They are a relatively new british company with a focus on sustainable luxury wools.
Please bear in mind that whilst every effort is made to ensure the photograph accurately reflects the yarn colour monitors do vary.
All Items come securely packaged in a waterproof envelope with a special gift and washing instructions.
