The Widow's Man - Full 100g Skein on Choufunga Sock

Regular price $26.00 Sale price $22.00

Colourway: The Widow's Man

This is my Male Black Widow Spider colourway, eye-catching on it's own or a perfect pairing with the Female Black Widow colourway, which is available in a separate listing.

This colourway is an addition to my Land of Enchantment series. The male Black Widow is much smaller and inconspicuous compared to the female and, whether overstated or often, should be wary not to make a misstep after mating lest he be eaten.

 Black Widow and Egg Sac mini skeins also available separately.

 All wool is hand dyed in single or small batches then washed and dried ready to be knit up into your own unique creation.

1 x 100g hank of Choufunga: Superwash Merino sock weight wool – 75% merino wool and 25% nylon for hand or machine knitting. Beautifully soft merino with nylon for a bit of extra stretch and strength.

Each 100g hank is about 465 yards / 425 meters.

Suitable for machine washing but hand washing is preferable. Dry flat.

While I have tried to capture the colours as best I can, please be aware colours may vary from those shown here.

Due to the nature of hand dyeing, colour saturation and placement may vary between different skeins of the same colourway. If you are using more than one to skein to complete your project I recommend alternating between the skeins for the best overall colour matching.

Ever had a wash load turn pink because of one tiny red sock? Although all wool has been washed thoroughly after dyeing, it is advisable to wash your creations separately the first time, in case any residual dye remains. The vibrancy of your wool will not be affected in the rare event that there is any run off. I don't expect the dyes to run, but I make mention out of caution as I would hate for my wool to be the 'red sock'!
