Chimera was a monstrous fire-breathing female monster resembling a lion in the forepart, a goat’s head in the middle of its back, and with a tail that ends in snakes’s head. She was one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna and a sibling of such monsters as Cerberus and the Lernaean Hydra
She devastated Caria and Lycia until she was slain by Bellerophon.
Chimera is a beautiful variegated colorway of gray, brown and blue.

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.
