• Image of Moon Pie Merino | "Desert Bloom" | 75/25 Hand-Dyed Speckled Sock Yarn

"Desert Bloom" is a beautiful soft speckled yarn with a sage green base color, shots of dusty pink, and flecks of deep pink, mossy green, and brown. Skeins can vary quite a bit within a dye lot, and colors within the same skein will vary in intensity during the course of a project, resulting in lots of lovely colors as they mix and play with each other. Please see the example picture to get an idea of how this colorway knits up. Every stitch is a fun surprise!

"Desert Bloom" is a repeatable colorway and part of my Summer Colors. If you would prefer it on a different base, please PM me to discuss.

While this yarn is superwash treated, I recommend hand washing in cool to warm water and air drying for best results and increased project life. Please be aware that due to the nature of the dyeing process, your first wash of this yarn may result in some excess dye coming off in the rinse water. I do a final rinse with a little Scentless SOAK to help take care of any excess dye, but some colors are more persistent than others. I use professional acid dyes for permanent color and dye in a dog-friendly, smoke-free home. Please be aware in case you have allergies.

I do my best to take accurate and true pictures of my yarn with natural lighting. However, monitor settings all vary, and colors may appear slightly different. Please be sure to read the color description and message me if you have any questions or need further help.
