Proteus,  a minor sea god. 

Proteus, a "Chameleon” of Greek mythology, could assume whatever shape he pleased. He came to be regarded by some as a symbol of the original matter from which the world was created.  Proteus was capable of changing his form at will to elude capture. 

Proteus was also known as the old man of the sea. He served as a shepherd for the sea god Poseidon, who was also his father. Proteus watched over Poseidon's flocks of seals, and in return, Poseidon gave Proteus the gift of prophecy, or the ability to see the future.

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.
