This bright clear Turquoise to Teal ombre brings to mind duck eggs, summer rivers and the gently wafting plants that dip over from the bank. You can see that my train of thought didn’t quite reach the station because when I was naming this I was admiring it in the light and it really is one of those things that makes you go ‘oooh’ so that’s what I called it! Looking at the skein on the winder you may think the colour difference is too subtle but trust me the fabric you create will be as complex as moving water with bright and dark ripples of colour, a subtle transition in between and an extra dimension when the light hits it. This is a really really lovely option for lovers of greens and blues.
Recommended care: Can be machine washed cool on a gentle cycle but we recommend hand washing to preserve the vibrancy of the dye.
While we do our best to keep our colours consistent each hand dyed yarn is one of a kind so we advise alternating skeins in a multi-skein project. See FAQs for more information.
