Apollo was the god of archery, music, poetry, the sun, light and knowledge.
Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto and had a twin sister, Artemis. His mother, fearful of revenge from Hera, Zeus’s wife, chose the small island of Delos to birth Apollo. To keep him safe from Hera, his mother fed him nectar and ambrosia which was said to immediately transfer him from babe to man in a day.
Apollo was a very important god as he had many responsibilities. He had many special powers including the ability to see into the future and power over light. He could heal people or cause disease and illness with his expertly shot silver bows. Above all, Apollo was a god of justice, law and order.
Apollo is a variegated colorway on a white base with splashes of aqua and gold with speckles.

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.
