Vixen - Saugerties Shuffle
Every once in awhile we create a color that is beautiful but not meant to be part of the regular color palette. This Oddball collection of color may be an experiment or an oops but it's always a happy surprise for you to discover.
Saugerties Shuffle was a special colorway dyed for the 2018 Indie Undatangled pop-up in Saugerties, NY. A few skeins came home with us and now they are yours.
Vixen fingering is a beautiful blend of springy superwash merino and silk for beautiful drape and just a little shine. Shown here in the I've Got a Right to Sing the Blues colorway, it's a lovely choice for shawls or light weight garments.
2-ply fingering weight
80% superwash merino / 20% silk
approx. 400 yds/100 g per skein
I recommend alternating skeins every few rows so that the colors blend properly. I know it’s a pain but you will be so much happier in the end. Do it for your sanity and your finished object.
Also, though technically true that superwash bases are machine washable on a gentle cycle, why not be kind and hand wash them? They’ll last longer! You’ve spent time and money to create your beautiful new object. It deserves a little extra love and care! Always lay flat to dry.
Also, also, I’ve tried really hard to photograph the yarns so that the color shows correctly. Unfortunately, you all can’t look at the lovely pics on my monitor. If you are unsure about a color/have questions please let me know. I will be happy to help!
