Seljavallalaug - Koobi Fora merino/nylon

26.00

A short hike off the main road sends you into a rocky gorge with black, moss covered mountains ascending high on either side. You wind your way around the drop-offs, tip-toeing along the precipice, and leaping over small portions that have been washed away by heavy rainfall. You finally round the corner and see it, nestled there into the side of the mountain; a small, geothermal pool. Dipping your toe in, you notice that the water is a slight shade of green. But the warmth beckons you, and you submerge completely into the wild wetness. 

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

This is a unique colorway (non-repeatable!) so snag them while you can!

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.
