Laetoli - Soulshine merino/silk


"Falling leaves are dancing around my head
Radiating with the brilliant colors of autumn
The wind is a gentle lover
Lifting my spirits
Caressing my skin with cool kisses.
Feet squishing in cold mud
I think of ancient footprints
Prehistoric partners
The lovers of Laetoli
Traveling together
Beneath the same sun
Making love under the same moon
Walking upright, just as we do.
Sweet wind,
You’re blowing me away."

Soulshine is a Superwash merino/silk blend of 80/20. It really does make your spirit shine with joy! This blend combines the beautiful body and softness of merino with the drape of silk, creating a yarn that stands out in extraordinary socks, shawls, and anything with a fine gauge! 

2 ply, 400 yds/366 meters, 100g

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.

 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.
