Uranus was god of the sky,

Uranus, both the son and husband of Gaia, played a major role in the creation story.  He mated with Gaia producing a whole spectrum of gods and monsters including Cyclops, the three giant Hecatonchires and the first generation of Titans.

Uranus was very jealous of his children and began hiding them deep within the recesses of Gaia's womb.  A frustrated Gaia schemed to set her kids free by giving her youngest child Cronus a knife.  When Cronus emerged, he castrated Uranus tossing them into the sea where Aphrodite and other children sprang forth where Uranus's blood spilled.

In the aftermath, Cronus stole Uranus's powerful position as the ruler of the universe until Zeus took it from him.

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.
