Lothagam - Koobi Fora merino/nylon

26.00

Investigate a new way to experience past human lifeways with some archaeology themed yarn! The Lothagam colorway, inspired by a geological formation in northern Kenya, home to many fossil animals, including our own human lineage!

Koobi Fora is a blend of 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon. The merino is luxuriously soft, while the nylon adds strength to the fibers, making this yarn ideal for knitting or crocheting socks, mittens, hats, leg warmers, or any garment that will benefit from extra durability. 

4 ply, Fingering weight, 465 yards/ 425 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.
