Hatshepsut - Tarim merino/cashmere/nylon

27.00

This yarn was inspired by Hatshepsut, one of the first female pharaohs in Egypt's history, and one of the most successful, ruling in the 1400s BC. Because her status as a female ruler was controversial, she had herself depicted as a muscular male on all statues and paintings of the time. She was depicted with the typical false beard, large muscles, but also in traditional female regalia. During her peaceable rule, she made great achievements in building temples and monuments, as well as establishing a trade expeditions, focusing on economy rather than conquering new lands. So this colorful colorway was inspired by her!

Tarim is a merino, cashmere, nylon blend, 80/10/10. The superwash merino is springy and oh so soft; blended with nylon for added elasticity and strength, while the cashmere adds a final exquisite element that makes this yarn a true delicacy. The base fiber of merino reduces the pilling that sometimes occurs when finer, slippery fibers are blended together. The chunky, springy nature of these plies give a beautiful texture when knitted or crocheted, notably in simple texture stitches and cables.

No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, it is recommended that you alternate rows to ensure more variegation and less pooling. Please note that there are many many factors that determine how the dyes will behave; the actual skein you receive may vary slightly from the photos. If you would like a greater number of skeins for a specific project, you are welcome to inquire and they will all be dyed at the same time to ensure the greatest level of similarity!

 My yarns are dyed with professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last against washing and sunlight.

This listing is for one skein of ready-to-ship yarn.

Superwash treated wool can, theoretically, be thrown in the washing machine on a cool setting. To maintain a long life for your garments however, I recommend that you hand wash your wool in cold water with as little agitation as possible. Squeeze out excess water (do not wring since this will damage the fibers and distort your garment), and roll in a towel or lay flat to dry, blocking if necessary. Store yarn as well as finished objects where they are safe from the harmful appetites of moths.
