Atlas was the Titan of Astronomy and Navigation.
Atlas was the son of Iapetus and the sea nymph Clymene. Atlas is primarily known for his mistreatment in the afterlife. Because Atlas and his brother, Menoetius took the side of the Titans in the great war against Zeus and the Olympians, they were punished for their rebellion. He was given a creative form of retribution and had to hold the sky on his shoulders for the rest of time. Atlas is depicted later in works of art as carrying the entire planet Earth on his shoulders.
Atlas is striking yarn full of blues, green and yellow 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.
