"Fuego" is actually named for a blogger I've been following for a little over a year now. Her name is Anna and her youtube channel is "Glitter and Lazers"... I dyed the colorway and didn't have a name for it originally. I was scrolling through instagram and saw a picture of her with a "fuego" swimsuit... and that's when I knew I had found the colorway name! You see, I sort of stumbled upon Anna's vlog on accident.. I wanted to know how Torrid clothes actually fit on larger people. I've always had a pretty good confidence and generally don't really care what people think of me... but Anna made it so much better! She has so much personality and genuinely doesn't give a dang what people think of her... if she wants to wear something, she is going to wear it! I feel like we all need to take a page out of the "Glitter and Lazers" handbook and just live life to the fullest!
*** Each skein is hand dyed individually, so no two will ever be the same!
Next to skin softness, not as plump as my 8 ply sw merino base, this is a 19.5 micron merino that is constructed of 3 plies merino/nylon and 1 ply of Lurex... it's super sparkly... this yarn would be great for any occasion... baby items too!
Hand dyed by me (Twin Mommy) in my kitchen using professional acid dyes... I make sure that all dye is exhausted, then rinse the fiber once with mild soap and once with hot water just to make sure that there is no bleeding or residue remaining.
Wash in warm or cool water with a mild soap or shampoo. Do not agitate. And lay flat to dry.
