Alexandria is a custom order for Siobhán, my wife and extremely very favorite human. I dip-dyed the skeins in a bath of "black" dye (it was breaking up into various cool/warm tones) and picked up some warm browns, then overdyed with purple (which itself broke into some various shades of violet, pink, and lavender). More on it in the blog soon!
This yarn base, Home, is soft-but-sturdy worsted weight yarn. I'd use it for sweaters, hats, scarves, blankets—it's versatile, but still great for next-to-skin wear. It's 100% fine organic merino in a 4-ply; 219 yds, 100g. Hand wash, dry flat.
