This yarn is a lovely 4ply dk weight yarn, made out of soft and squishy 100% superwash merino wool. I test knit all yarns before adding them to my line, and I honestly think that this is the best DK weight yarn on the market right now. It showcases both lace and cables beautifully when knit, and holds its shape with blocking and wearing.

This yarn was inspired by fabric designed by the renowned fabric designer Anna Maria Horner, and is now available directly from Unwind Yarn Company. It was based on the print “Social Climber” in the color story Ice, and features a turquoise background with splashes of teal and lime. It is a speckled colorway and should not pool when knit. Please see the second picture for a swatch of this yarn knit up into a mitered square, and you can find the original fabric here: http://www.hawthornethreads.com/fabric/designer/anna_maria_horner/floral_retrospective/social_climber_in_ice.

Love this colorway but it sold out, or you need a bigger lot or a different base? Place a custom order and I'll get to work on it right away!

You deserve the best, so don't you deserve to Unwind?

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.
