Dahlias represent dignity, inner strength, creativity, change, and standing by your values. I have used a deep red dye that strikes fast with a little softer pink added that has been allowed to spread slightly before fixing. This creates the rich red with a pretty pink “halo” effect.
It is a superwash treated 4ply sock weight yarn with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth, 25% nylon for strength and durability. Around 84 metres per 20g mini skein.
I do not cake miniskeins.
You can safely wash this colourway using very mild detergent at 30 degrees in soft water with a near neutral pH. If you boil wash it in hard alkaline water you will have a hot pink mess on your hands! You can neutralise your water with a tiny amount of citric acid or vinegar if need be (this isn’t to fix the dye, it’s already fixed, this is to lower the pH of the water). Don’t worry about making it mildly acidic, that won’t harm the wool.
