Comment:  Extremely versatile and a Ravelry favourite, which can be used for a wide variety of projects -   socks, lace shawls sweaters and cardigans.  Kettle dyed in Peru, the colours are both rich and saturated.

If knitting socks, I would recommend you add a bit of nylon to strengthen the toes and heels, otherwise they will tend to wear down very quickly..

Be sure to buy enough for your project, since with all hand dyed yarns, dyelots can vary. For your information, skeins may vary  even within the same bag and dyelot. To ensure random color distribution and to minimise pooling, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

NB. It is extremely hard to photograph the true colours of hand dyed yarns, and colours can vary depending on different computer monitor and settings.
