Ares was the god of war.
He was the son of Zeus and Hera. Ares embodied the physical aggression necessary for success in war. He was a dangerous overwhelming force that was insatiable in battle. Ares took a limited role in literature but when he does appear in myths he is typically facing humiliation.
He was the well known lover of Aphrodite who was married to Hephaestus. He always took the side of Aphrodite in the Trojan War. In art, Ares is generally depicted wearing a spear and helmet
Ares is a variegated colorway with splashes of red, gold and brown

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.
