Athens is part of the Ancient Civilizations collection. When looking at Ancient Civilizations I just had to look into Ancient Greece specifically Athens in it's Golden Age where great thinkers, writers, and artists flourished in the city. Just a few are: Herodotus, the `father of history', lived and wrote in Athens. Socrates, the `father of philosophy', taught in the marketplace. Hippocrates, `the father of medicine', practiced there.
Athens is dyed with splashes of teal, deep purple, green and pink.
Each skein is hand dyed with professional acid dyes and heat set. I wash the yarns in wool wash and rinse to make sure that the dye has set. Even with this process, you may get minimal bleeding on the first few washes.
Dyed and stored in a smoke-free home.
While this is superwash merino and you could machine wash gentle and tumble dry low, I always recommend hand washing with mild soap or wool wash and lay flat to dry to ensure a long life of hand knits.
I'd love to see your hand-knit projects. Please use #theperfectstitchfibreco so I can what projects you use with this yarn!
