The Alga Mini Skein set is inspired by Victorian seaweed collectors and the journals and illustrations that they created. From light peachy pinks and deeper garnet speckles to olive greens and golden yellows this set is perfect for all seasons.

 

This set includes 5 x 20g skeins in the following colourways:

 

Georgiana- The lightest of the collection with hints of pinks and yellows. Named for a Victoran seaweed collector who's seaweed journals were found in the Scarborough Vaults. 

 

Chrondrus- With pink tones from light to medium with speckles in yellow and green, named after botanical illustrations of the seaweed Chondrus Crispus, commonly known as Irish Moss.

 

Dulse- Vibrant yellow green blended with areas of light pink and a brighter red named after a type of Seaweed.

 

Calycaris- Olive green base with layers of golden yellow and rich deep reds so called after a Victorian drawing of botanicals.

 

Florideae- A prodominately red hued yarn with brief breaks of gold and olive green. Inspired by an antique print of Red Algae called 'Florideae'

All Superwash Merino yarn bases are machine washable at 30°C although I recommend hand washing as some bleeding may occur. Our yarns are rinsed after dyeing and steam set with acid over several hours to ensure longevity however occasionally some dye particles are missed, to minimise on any accidents wash seperately.
