Our September Color of the Month: Seahorse
Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, known as Neptune to the Romans, traveled in a chariot drawn by fierce seahorses with heads of a horse and tails of a fish. For more than 2,000 years, sculptures, drawings, paintings, and mosaics have depicted Poseidon's seahorses with glorious imagination. The seahorse is quite a unique creature and thought to have mystical significance among the Torres Strait Island people. The Torres Strait Islanders believed that the seahorse is a luck of good fortune/charm an attribute of the sea, the seahorse is considered to be a symbol of strength and power. We love this color as it captures everything we love about the ocean!
These skeins are dyed in small batches. Due to the nature of the process, each skein is unique and each batch will vary in saturation and speckles. This uniqueness is what makes hand dyed yarn so wonderful!
We recommended alternating between skeins on larger projects. Sometimes the pots yield one of a kind colorways so the shop will always offer surprises!
Spun Right Round approaches the dye pots as artists. Although they follow dye recipes, the results can be unpredictable. Please keep in mind that each skein is truly unique! Also please be aware that computer monitors can vary greatly. Spun Right Round skeins are rinsed in a lavender wash. How lovely!
