This colour way was created as an acknowledgement of the Humboldt Broncos junior A (ages 16-21) hockey team of Humboldt, Saskatchewan who were travelling in a coach bus to their playoff game when a tractor trailer t-boned them, killing 16 members and injuring 14 more. This tragedy hits very close to home, being a hockey mom myself and knowing a specialty coach that works with my son's team lost his own son in the crash. Through the initial release of this colourway, and thanks to all of you who purchased, we fundraised over $1400 for the Broncos as well as the first responders.
Each skein is carefully hand dyed with professional acid dyes to be colourfast and long lasting. While the base is a superwash yarn, I still recommend hand washing in cool water to preserve the life of your works of art. Every colourway is dyed to be as similar between skeins as possible, however there are no dye lots and each skein will be slightly different from the next. Please contact me if you'd like to order enough for a larger project and I'd be happy to custom dye enough in the same pot for colour consistency.
**PLEASE NOTE: All shipping overages will be refunded to the buyer less $2 handling fee.
