Poseidon, god of the sea, earthquake, storms and horses. He was the second son of Cronus and Rhea.
Just like with Zeus, Rhea managed to hide Poseidon from his father's rage and gave Cronus a baby horse to swallow instead of Poseidon. Poseidon was raised in the island of Rhodes. Poseidon fathered more than 100 children and monsters He also fathered many horses, best known was the winged horse Pegasus by Medusa.
Poseidon had a very violent character, impulsive, hot-blooded and welded incredible power. He created new islands, and the relative calmness or wildness of the seas indicated his mood.
See our colorway The Big Three for the story of he and his brothers Zeus and Hades.
Poseidon is a variegated yarn of dark teals and brown.

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.
