The Unsleeping City is inspired by the Dimension 20 season of the same name from College Humor. The Unsleeping city speaks to me of blues and swirling purple mists/colours, though if you've been listening this season there's that insidious grey mist too! With speckles in gold and caramel brown to symbolise those New York City Brownstones and the lights that are always on somewhere in a city that never sleeps.

There may be some variation from skein to skein, even within the same dyelot. For best results, alternate skeins every few rows in projects using several skeins. • This skein is machine washable, though to preserve colour and texture in your garments, gentle hand washing is recommended. • All skeins undergo a 4-5 step washing process but some colours are prone to a small amount of bleeding in their first or second wash, due to .his we recommend washing in cold water with a gentle detergent or wool wash
