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 yarn has been dyed in my new repeatable colorway Strumpet: a gorgeous semisolid fuchsia-pink with purple undertones. Since this is a semisolid colorway, it will not pool when knit. To see what this yarn looks like knit up, please see the second picture. There are two 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!
49% superfine alpaca/ 49% superwash merino/ 2% polyester glitz
5 sts = 1” on US8 needles
Hand wash gentle, dry flat
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.
