Desert Sunset is dyed in layers of deep orange and rich brown -- the mix has created a lovely soft color that reminds us of the gorgeous twilight hours on our vacation to St. George, Utah. It will work up into a super soft, lightweight project.
The extrafine merino wool (19.5 microns) is especially cushy and feels great on sensitive skin. It's blended with a bit of nylon for extra durability -- perfect for long-wearing projects like gloves and socks.
Dyed by us in our home state of Washington using professional commercial dyes that won't fade or bleed.
