MERAK HUES - a Serbian word meaning: 'a sense of bliss or oneness with the Universe that comes from simple pleasures.' I've been getting up around 5 am lately to start my day early, read/meditation/move/plan/vision/write. The other morning I decided to head out to my hammock. It was soaking wet from the rain we'd had the night before, but instead of recoiling and heading back inside, I lied down on it anyway, allowing the water to seep into my pajamas. The sky was still inky with barely-there hints of light behind the clouds. Silence. The neighborhood was still sleeping. I was alone but surrounded by life. The huge southern trees shimmied next to me and whispered - Good morning. All is well. All is well. The birds chattered about their daily plans. It was a sweet moment of quiet, dark (and wet!) stillness. It was unusual. Fresh. Calming. A snippet of wonder and magic before the day began.

The colors in this kit reminded me of that moment - the perfect shifting gradient from twilight blue to blue/teal to teal to green/teal to forest green. I hope while knitting/crocheting with this kit, you experience Merak. Use this kit to crochet the Colina shawl.

YARN - DEWY DK WEIGHT - 70% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Nylon, 10% Silk

This yarn is sumptuous. Ultra-soft and squishy, and sure to be a favorite. Machine-washable, with a hint of "dewy" glow from the silk and strength and longevity from the nylon. I had the mill spin this custom yarn to these exact specs so you'd have a versatile DK weight yarn not only beautiful to look at but also delightful to work with.  

•4-ply: This produces a round, plump yarn, for beautiful, defined stitches!
•DK Weight (stands for Double Knitting): This weight of yarn is thinner than worsted weight and thicker than sport weight. It's incredibly versatile and can be knitted or crocheted into an endless number of wonderful items. All types of accessories from head to toe...sweaters are amazzzing... soft, cozy, long-wearing afghans, and loads more. This yarn is ideal for baby items too, due to the softness and ability to be machine-washed.
•Yardage: 228 m / 250 yd each skein (kit total: 1,250 yd/1140 m)

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
