The goddess of the hunt was the most popular and widely worshipped of the Greek goddesses. She was considered one of the most beautiful goddesses. She was Apollo’s twin sister and the Greeks believed she shared with him the ability to both heal and cause disease.
Artemis was commonly thought of as traipsing through the Greek countryside, hunting with her silver bow and arrow, and caring for wild animals. She was usually depicted in company of a deer and hunting dogs.
Artemis is a variegated colorway of royal blue and green with purple and brown 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.
