Aphrodite was the goddess of beauty, fertility and love. She was born out of the foam after Cronus amputated his father Uranus’s genitals and hurled them into the water. She was born a fully grown woman.
Aphrodite was the most beautiful of the gods. She was so attractive that Zeus worried her good looks would cause chaos and dissension at Mount Olympus so he arranged for her to marry the ugly, deformed blacksmith, Hephaestus. Aphrodite’s beauty awarded her enormous influence and power over men. Having a talented husband also meant she had plenty of magic trinkets and jewelry available to enhance her appearance including a golden girdle which made her irresistible to anyone who looked upon her.
Aphrodite is a variegated colorway with hot pink, red, black and aqua.

Care of your hand knit garments
Please hand wash cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. Even though this yarn does contain superwash merino, I do always recommend that you hand wash your knitwear. We use colorfast acid dyes for dying our yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. There may be a chance that some dye may bleed slightly in the first wash of your finished item. This does sometimes happen for speckled yarn and stubborn colors that are prone to bleed. For the first couple of washes, hand wash separately to be sure that no further bleeding.
There are no dye lots. We always try to sell from same dye lots but if not sure, we recommend blending the skeins as you work. Color saturation can differ from different dyelots.
