CHESAPEAKE BAY - Maryland 2021 Color, Toad Hollow Yarns

$ 28.00

We are so thrilled to introduce to you the MARYLAND 2021 Color CHESAPEAKE BAY!  It is a mix of blues and greens and actually looks like moving water.

There’s a long, sordid story to go with this color.  Last year’s Maryland color, Hope Springs, was such a hit, we put a lot of pressure on ourselves this year to design and equally amazing color.  We came up with the colors we wanted to include, and hit the dye pots.  The first iteration was a disaster, two of the colors played very badly together and it just was not good (trust us).  The second iteration was much better but not the OMG of Hope, so for the third iteration we added a little more of one of the colors.  Better but not yet right, it was too reminiscent of Hope.  So we went back to the drawing board and came up with something totally different.  Again, off to the dye pots and there are times when you just know the minute all the dyes are on that you have a winner. This was one of those times.

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 socks, shawls, sweaters or any project where you would use a Fingering weight.

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.
