Veil Dyed Superwash
Inspired by the play of light in nature, Dream in Color's veil dyeing process brings depth and life to color, giving garments a subtle, dramatic shimmer and shine. While veil dyed yarn has all the unique character of other hand-dyed yarns, it will not “landscape” or “pool.” The result? A magnificent, flattering garment every time!
Dream in Color's superwash yarn is machine washable (delicate cycle, cold water) and can be tumbled dry on low heat, making it a perfect choice for socks, baby things or anything that requires frequent washing. What’s more, it’s just incredibly soft! Dream in Color Veil Dyed Superwash™ is spun from 22 micron 100% Australian merino wool, whereas most traditional wool is significantly coarser - around 28 microns and higher. Finer fibers make for softer yarn, and softer yarn makes for garments that feel comfortable - and never itchy - against your skin.
The softness and fine sheen of Veil Dyed Superwash™ yarn make it ideal for sweaters and larger garments. The wool has excellent spring and elasticity. Cables and bobbles will standout beautifully, and the subtle color variations unique to our veil dyeing process won’t distract from intricate stitch patterns the way that many hand dyed yarns will.
As with most hand dyed yarns, each skein of Veil Dyed Superwash™ is unique. We recommend that the customer use two balls at the same time when working on larger garments. Changing frequently between balls insures that there are no striking color changes in the finished garment.
