Shortcuts & Mushrooms Variegated & Speckled - Various Bases

$18.00 - On Sale

Our 2016-17 Killarney Collection Yarn Club featured colorways dyed in response to the inspiration I received on a back country canoe trip my husband and I took in Killarney Provincial Park in Ontario in September 2016. These colorways are debuting in the shop now for the first time.

Shortcuts & Mushrooms was inspired by the many portage trails we had to traverse between the lakes in Killarney. Some where short, others quite long and arduous, but they all provided the "short cut" we needed to get to our next lake as we went about our trip. Despite carrying the canoe and all of our belongings for the weeklong trip, the portages - even the harder ones - were made enjoyable by the beauty around us, including the incredible diversity of mushroom growth! There were so many mushrooms in bright, colorful hues, I knew they would make their way into a colorway when I got home.

The first picture shows this colorway dyed up on our Cozy base. The second picture is a collage of inspiration shots that I took along the way.

This is available on the following bases:

Bedazzled, fingering, 75/20/5 SW Merino/Nylon/Stellina, 438 yards
Elegance, lace weight, 80/20 SW Merino/Silk, 850 yards
Cozy, worsted, 100% SW Merino, 220 yards
Megga, bulky, 100% SW Merino, 105 yards

Recommended care: Though these are superwash wools and can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air dry flat.

All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color strengths can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.

We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
