The First Human Woman & the Source of All Evil
After overthrowing the Titans, Zeus asked Hephaestus to create a human woman out of the soil. This was part of the punishment of mankind, because Prometheus had stolen the secret of fire. She was modeled after Aphrodite and given life. She was showered with special godly gifts including beauty, cunning, curiosity, musical abilities and gardening skills.
Hermès gave Pandora a box for a wedding present but with a condition that she never open it. Pandora could not stop thinking about the box. She eventually opened it only to discover as the flip side of all the wonderful gifts bestowed on her, the gods had packed calamities into the box. Pandora was held responsible for releasing the ills of humanity into the world. The name Pandora means “gifts” and “all”.

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.
