Serendibite is an extremely rare borosilicate mineral discovered in 1902 Sri Lanka. At one time crystalline serendibite was one of the rarest gems in the world and only a handful of specimens were known to exist. It was one of the rarest gems in the world until 2005 a new deposit was discovered in Burma. The gems tend to occur in a violet blue or blue grey.
Our Serendibite is a intense blue grey tonal.

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.
