Ruth Bader Ginsberg had a tremendous influence in our lives, even if we didn't realize it right away. The laws and rights for women that she argued for affect females everywhere. It was with such deep sadness that we learned of her passing last week and we wanted to remember her with a yarn color.

When asked when there would be enough women on the Supreme Court, she answered "when there are nine" and we agree. There are nine different colors (including the base color) included in this yarn - 4 purple and 4 pink. It is a speckle/variegated yarn - when knit up, there will be 1 or 2 stitches of a color against the cream background.

As Helen said on the podcast, this will make a gorgeous sweater, shawl, hat, a pair of mittens. It's a great yarn to make something and pass on to the next generation - sharing RBG's legacy.

Our yarns are hand dyed or hand painted using professional acid dyes. We wash each skein carefully after dying but slight bleeding may occur during first wash. Skeins may vary in color slightly so if using more than one skein of yarn in a project, please alternate skeins every few rows.

This soft, squishy yarn is perfect for shawls, sweaters or any project where you would use a Fingering weight. We are loving making socks from this yarn.

Care of yarn - superwash merino will allow you to wash your items in the washing machine but please use cold water. For best results and care, hand washing is recommended.

Sweater quantities of yarn can be ordered - please message us for information.
