One of two words used for green, uaine captures rolling green hills, rivers, and many man-made shades: a green coat, green paint, the green of the Irish flag. While both uaine and glas are used for green, sometimes even for the same objects viewed through different eyes, our interpretation of uaine leans towards the vibrant, and we attempted to capture both naturally and supernaturally powerful tones in this colorway.
This colorway is part of our Dathannaseries, inspired by the Irish language and its words for colors. Kettle-dyed with carefully-chosen undertones, we’ve made poetic interpretations of the subtle nuances ofdathanna, or colors, as they’re understood and usedas Gaeilge.These colorways are all more-or-less subtly variegated, so if you’re trying to avoid color pooling, we recommend alternating two skeins in your project. We do our best to hand-match skeins in each order, but due to our small dye batches and the natural movement of dye in a kettle, we can’t guarantee exact color alignment matches from skein to skein. Please wash your yarn or finished objects in cold water with a designated wool wash to avoid bleeding.
