Colourway: Chasing the Magic Bear
This colourway inspiration comes from ‘The Song of the Wind’ which can be found in Argyll Folk Tales, by Bob Pegg, The History Press. The tale contains two adaptations of Native American stories and although not Scottish in origin, they are a lovely reminder of many a tale I grew up with in New Mexico and I felt I really wanted to include it in this set. The stars and our early attempts at understanding them form a common thread in folklore and mythology throughout the world that connects us all.
This colourway was first introduced in my 2019 Scottish Myth & Folklore Advent Set as Day 21.
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.
