Years ago I went to Newgrange in Co. Meath, Ireland. It is a prehistoric "passage tomb"  and the entry is aligned with the sunrise of the Winter Solstice. Archeologists can only guess what the people of Ireland from 5,300 years ago believed, but they found cremated remains in a bowl-like vessel in the floor of the monument. When the sun rises on the Solstice it looks as though the Sun rises from the bowl (but it's Ireland so who know how often that ACTUALLY happens on December 21st?!). Perhaps they believed the ancestors rose from the ashes with the Sun. 

75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon

4ply yarn

463 yds/100g skein

Softness Rating: 3

This is the workhorse yarn. It can be used for baby items, socks, shawls, you name it. It's soft enough to envelope your feet in knitting socks, but strong enough to walk around your house without shoes on. Also, it's machine washable, so no fears of shrinking your work.
