Her slender legs and dainty waist are deceivers of her deadly power. So small in stature but quiet in stealth. One bite from her and you will see why she wears a warning. Don't fear her, but certainly respect her. She is mighty in her own way!
Black Widow is a tribute to that small arachnid that we have grown to fear over the years, but she is a testament to the strength of the seemingly small and fragile. Created in a multi-step process using resist dye techniques, Black Widow is striking, just like her namesake.
Due to the nature of this process, this colorway is not available on all our bases.

Note: While the mill states that some bases are machine washable superwash yarn, this is a hand dyed product. The dye was completely exhausted and the water ran clear in the rinse process, however, some bleeding may occur with different detergents and water quality. We highly recommend hand washing using a wool safe wash such as Soak and drying flat or line drying.
When quantities are out of stock, they will be dyed to order and shipping may take 3-14 days.
Some of our photos may show more than one skein, the price listed is for only one skein.
All attempts are made to show our yarns in as close to their actual colors as possible. Colors may vary depending on monitors and lighting. Some yarns (such as those on Mohair) will come out muted and speckles will be more of a watercolor effect or have a sheen due to their fiber content.
