Bruce has the subtle gray/blue tone of the belly of a shark.
Some think we named this colorway after the shark in Finding Nemo. Plot Twist: We didn't! The shark in Finding Nemo was actually named Bruce as a tribute to the movie JAWS. The mechanical shark they used for some of the shots in that movie had the pet name of Bruce, which was an homage to Spielberg's tenacious lawyer!
Mighty Merino is a 100% merino superwash powerhouse for the softer things in life. This yarn knits up perfectly for garments and other next-to-skin soft items. This version replaces our old Mighty Merino base but has the same characteristics. It takes the dye very vividly, is soft, smooth, and comes in slightly shorter wound skeins.

We advise against knitting socks with this yarn. While a merino yarn consisting of 4 plies can be used to knit socks, they will quite probably wear out faster than sock yarns with added nylon, silk, or Tencel or sturdier wool types in general like BFL.
This listing is for 1 skein of yarn. Photo of multiple skeins shows a comparison between yarn bases and/or skeins.
Colors may slightly vary on every monitor due to settings. This means that the color may differ a little bit in real life from what you see on screen.
As a fat fabulous creature, I (Aiden) know how hard it can be to source enough yarn to make myself a sweater. What takes the 'average' person 4 - 5 skeins, takes me at least 6 and usually around 8 skeins. (I'm between a 134 cm / 54 inch torso circumference).
It makes knitting or crocheting garments with hand dyed yarn a pretty costly adventure, which is why I am now offering discounts for yarn quantities that are above average.
This discount applies to all of our hand dyed yarns (that are not on sale), and can be combined between bases and colorways. You could make that top that uses a bajillion colors, or just pick the skeins for a single color project.
I'm not plus size. Can I use these discount codes?
We will not police purchases and I will not exclude people from this discount based on their size. Hell, I encourage everyone who wants to use these codes for their 5+ skein purchases to use it. The economy is tight enough as it is and society already does enough excluding, no need for me to tack on some more.
