Naiad is my favorite shade of watery blue. It’s a true tonal featuring highlights and shadows with subtle speckling sprinkled throughout. Naiad on Shimmer is even more special because the stelina adds subtle sparkle like sunbeams glittering on the water.
My Shimmer base is comprised of 75% Superwash Merino Wool / 20% Nylon / 5% Stelina for just enough sparkle.
Each skein of yarn has been hand painted with love and care in a smoke-free environment. I use professional quality acid dyes in a small batch dying process. No two skeins are exactly the same. It is beneficial to alternate skeins for large projects. If you would like to order a sweater’s quantity, please contact us before ordering so we can make sure you have the closest matching skeins for your project.
All skeins are hand washed and rinsed thoroughly before you receive them, however, some bleeding may occur, especially in the first few washes.
I do my best to represent colors accurately in photographs, however, colors may vary from monitor to monitor. Photos are taken in natural lighting with minimal photo editing. Please contact me with any special requests or questions before ordering.
Care: Although my superwash blend is machine washable, I recommend hand washing with wool wash or a gentle soap to preserve colors and durability. Lay flat to dry.
