GNARLY, an 80s word frequently used to mean difficult, challenging, or dangerous, was often heard in high school hallways in reference to tests.  We often dumbed the definition down to mean "bad".  "That lunch was gnarly." 

Highly speckled with burgundies, blues, oranges, and golds, this colorway will go well with any seasonal item you create.  

Handdyed in Western Colorado, USA

The yarn is very soft and squishy and doesn't split. It is dreamy to work with and will soon become one of your favorite yarns!
Please allow 7 - 10 days for processing as this is a dyed-to-order colorway.

Washing instructions:
For best results, handknit items should be handwashed in tepid water and laid flat to dry. Superwash yarn CAN be washed in the machine on a gentle cycle (but not advised), then laid flat to dry.

Yarn dyeing is done at home in my back room and air-dried by God. We are a non-smoking home with a cat that roams around our back room and yard. He is afraid of the dyeing equipment and special care is taken so that he does not get onto the yarn - he's too old and arthritic to jump up on the table anyway.
