The newest yarn base for Unwind Yarn Company was voted into the lineup by an informal Instagram poll- apparently sportweight socks and easy-care garments are on everyone’s knit list right now! This absolutely delightful three-ply sportweight yarn is a luscious blend of superwash merino and nylon, and wears beautifully in any application. The very round structure showcases stitch patterns beautifully, while the nylon content will help your work of art to last! It comes in a very generous put-up as well, so you have lots of yardage to work with.
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 “Source Code” in the color story Peacock, and features an purplish-blue backgroud with speckles and splashes of hot pink, orange, teal green, and aqua. It is a speckled/space dyed hybrid 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.freespiritfabrics.com/coatsb2b/en/Collection/Sweet-Dreams/Anna-Maria-Horner-Sweet-Dreams-Source-Code/p/PWAH119.GLIST.

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.
