Typhon, the god of all monsters and the most fearsome deity of all.
Typhon was a grisly monster with a hundred serpent heads and the torso of a man. One of his heads had glowing eyes and breathed fire. He also had wings and on his hands snakes instead of fingers. Typhon was the child of Gaia and Tartarus.
Typhon was married to Echidna and produced many children including Sphinx, Hercules, Cerberus, Chimera and the Hydra.
Typhon was buried in the pit of Tartarus by the hands of Zeus. According to legend, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes are the result of Typhon struggling to get free.
Typhon is a variegated colorway of blue grey, orange and red.

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.
