• Image of NEW COLORWAY Auld Lang Syne Holiday Worsetd Yarn

A new glitzy, glamorous and oh-so-soft yarn for Unwind Yarn Company! This American-milled yarn is a lovely 3 ply, comprised of superfine alpaca, superwash merino, and polyester glitz for a little bit of sparkle. I am sensitive to alpaca, and this yarn does not bother me one bit- it is very soft with a gentle halo, but none of those itchy guard hairs sometimes found in alpaca yarns. The mill that manufactures it recommends a US8 needle, but I think you’ll find many uses for it with patterns that call for weights from DK to chunky as I’ve knit it on needles ranging from a 6 to a 10.5 and found the fabric pleasing in all instances! It also takes dye beautifully, in saturated tones with a lot of depth range. With its generous put-up of 180 yards, your projects are only limited by your imagination!

This lot has been dyed in my brand new repeatable colorway Auld Lang Syne: a lovely white base yarn with speckles of lemon yellow, orange, teal, aqua, mossy green, black, pink, red, and purple. As this is a speckled colorway it should not pool when knit. There are 2 skeins available in this dyelot.

Is this item sold out and you missed out, or do you want to see this colorway on another base? Place a custom order and I'll get it dyed up as soon as possible!

As with any hand dyed yarn, variations between skeins can happen even in the same dyelot. I always recommend alternating skeins in a project to minimize any noticeable differences.

After dyeing, I always rinse my items once in cool water; be aware that some dye leakage may still happen when the item is washed for the first time, but is not indicative of color fading.

Any purchase of 2 or more mailable items from my shop will receive an organic lavender sachet in their package. If you would prefer not to receive a sachet for allergy or other reasons, please leave me a note at checkout.

Please keep in mind that I try my best to photograph my items carefully, and that the colors are correct on my monitor…. however, there might be a slight variation between my monitor and yours.
