Gothic Merino DK
We’ve named these colourful skeins of Merino DK after the Addams Family, whose macabre interests and gothic tastes are perfect at this time of year. The Addams Family are a witty contrast to stereotypical suburbia and first appeared as a series of illustrations and have since spawned multiple film and tv adaptations – and even a musical. The 90s film in particular is a firm favourite and well recommended for any of you who prefer a good old chuckle to a scare jump when it comes to Halloween entertainment!
Twas great fun naming these skeins, I think Morticia’s Lipstick and Cousin It are probably my two favourites. But you also gotta love the thing!
From time to time our splendid Mill Folk make a mistake when selecting gears and calibrating the machines (they are only human after all!)… this means that we occasionally end up with batches which are a little slubby – as you can see from the photo – or, if colour percentages or a little off, are slightly the wrong shade. So all these shades of Merino DK contain minor faults like this – they will still be fab to work with, but are just not quite up to our exacting standards.
For this reason we are offering these skeins at a reduced rate. Please be aware, we only have a very small quantity of some of these shades with no more waiting in the wings… ta.
