Wishing you were a spinner, or just don’t have the time to spin your own yarn? This gorgeous new yarn base from Unwind is your ticket to that handspun look! It features an extremely soft thick and thin single ply of superwash merino, plied together with a 2ply of very thin nylon. It takes dye beautifully and richly as all merino does, and gives a gorgeous pebbled appearance to your finished knit. The manufacturer recommends a US10 when knitting this yarn, but I have found success knitting it on anywhere from an US7 to a US13. It all depends on the fabric you want! The generous 140 yard put-up means your projects are only limited by your imagination. You will absolutely love this yarn!
This yarn is dyed in memory of my maternal grandmother, who was a really strong crafty influence in my early years. She was an amazing seamstress and could make anything she set her mind to. The colors in this skein (lavender, deep purple, gold, turquoise, and white) are all colors that she loved and surrounded herself with. This is a kettle dyed colorway and should not pool when knit. There are two skeins available in this dyelot. Love this yarn but it sold out, or you want this colorway on a different base? Place a custom order for what you want and I'll get to work on it ASAP!
98% superwash merino/ 2% nylon binding thread
3.5 sts = 1” on US10 needle

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.
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.
