*Please note that this yarn contains a fuchsia dye, so it may tint the water a bit when blocking or doing a wool wash soak. The extreme brightness of fuchsia dye tends to make the water tint with even the tiniest bit of dye, but it should not be so much as to be considered a "bleed." It has been well set and rinsed and should not affect the color of the yarn, however you may want to add a little vinegar to the water if soaking a project that also contains a very light or white colored yarn just in case.
Hand dyed in tonal, speckled and lightly variegated colorways, Backcountry is a soft 2-ply Superwash Merino sock weight yarn with a nice tight twist. Perfect for shawls and scarves that you want to block well to show off lace or patterning. 100 grams, 400 yards/skein.
Since all Panorama yarn is hand-dyed, expect some variation between hanks of the same colorway.
