Oceanus, the Titan god of the River  

According to one version, he was born by the union of the primal gods Gaia and Uranus and it one of the twelve Titans. 

The ancient Greeks believed Oceanus, one of the Titans, exercised control over the world’s first oceans and waterways.

Many early works of art depict him as somewhat resembling a man. He usually possessed the tail of a serpentine and a set of horns on his head resembling crab claws. He was later considered as a simple sea god or the personification of the sea.

Oceanus was married to his sister, Tethys, with whom he had numerous children, called Oceanids. These were the lesser gods and goddesses of the rivers, the sea, and the springs. In fact, Oceanus and Tethys were so fertile that the overproduction of the aqueous elements of nature would cause floods; so, they divorced to stop this from happening.

Oceanus is  a variegated colorway of mint and dark blues with fuchsia and black 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.
