The ball is 223 yard of Patons merino blend Classic Wool and the twist skein is 100 yards of Lamb’s Pride 85% wool/15% mohair blend. I dyed both with less than ¼ of a package of RIT dye in Royal Blue. The wool/mohair blend was actually a dark gray color but I overdyed it. The Patons was cream colored before dyeing.

One thing I’ve learned about RIT is that you have to rinse and rinse and then rinse some more to make it colorfast but the results are worth it.
