Tutankhamun's Necklace - January Colour of the Month (Non Subscription Option)

Yarn Base: Socknado

Unique colour creations exclusively available each month!

Colour of the Month 2023 - INTERESTING ARCHEOLOGICAL SITES 

Our first stop is in Egypt at the Valley of the Kings, and the tomb of King Tutankhamun, which was opened on November 4th, 1922. Quite a few pieces of jewelry that were photographed at the tomb during the excavation went missing, such as a broad collar made of turquoise and gold. It is this necklace that was the inspiration for our January colour of the month.

Dyed-to-Order:  Please note that with dyed-to-order yarns you will need to allow up to 1 - 2 weeksfor us to dye and ship your yarn.

Working with Hand Dyed Yarn: While we strive for consistency, due to the hand dye process variations may exist between (and with some colourways within) dye lots. Therefore it is important to order sufficient yarn for your project, and if a uniform result is preferred we suggest alternating skeins. We hope that you will value and appreciate the beautiful and unique creations of the hand dye process and are always happy to assist you in working with hand dyed yarns!
