Hestia, goddess of the home and hearth. She was the first born of Cronus and Rhea.
Hestia remained a virgin goddess even though many competed for her affections. Hestia's job was to maintain the fires of Olympus and continually feed it with sacred offerings to the gods. Because tending these hearth fires was her responsibility, she never left her heavenly home, therefore she didn't have the other deities reputation or interfering in the affairs of humans. Hestia was associated with personal happiness, security and hospitality.
Hestia is an intense colorway of red, orange and yellow.

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.
