“old” watercolors was:
a soft blend of 80% superwash merino wool and 20% nylon, approx. 420 yards.
Machine wash, lay flat to dry
Please note that the original watercolors yarn is discontinued as of October 2010.
The NEW watercolors has a tighter twist and more yardage, is therefore slightly thinner, more a typical sock weight, and has been a bestseller for 5 years running!
