I’m not much of a hunter myself, but I know a lot of people enjoy going out into the wild and shooting their own food for the winter.
Recently, when I mentioned I was getting some new-to-me Merino DK wt. yarn, a friend asked for something in Hunter Orange and sent me this as a guide:
So when the new yarn arrived, I dyed up two of them for him. Mine came out just a wee bit deeper than his sample, but he said he was happy with them. I have since learned that there is actually a specific hue, called Blaze Orange, intended to be used for safety gear. But when I looked up “Hunter Orange” on Google, I found loads of images in a variety of hues, both ligher and darker/deeper than mine, so I’m calling this “Knitivity’s Hunter Orange” and I won’t mess with the recipe. Here is how they look after the wash and rinse:
And this is how they look after reskeining.
These two are already sold to my friend so you can’t have these, but if you would like one or two skeins of Knitivity’s Hunter Orange, on Merino DK wt (250 yards apiece), let me know in an email request. You can have one for $22.00 or two for $40.00. I have some of this yarn remaining, and (because it is new to my supplier) I can order more if you need it.
