EPIC RAINBOW KIT - words do this kit no justice! It's beyond amazing. 1 skein is a rainbow multi-color with the full spectrum of colors in it. The other 8 skeins are a gradient flow...each is dyed with half of the next color. Red and pink, pink and yellow (makes orange in the middle), yellow and lime, lime and turquoise, turquoise and teal, teal and blue, blue and purple and finally purple and red. GAHHH!!!
•Perfect for hand-knit socks, shawls, modern baby clothes and hats, accessories, mittens, stuffed animals and anything else you can think of!!
"RESILIENT" SUPERWASH MERINO WOOL SOCK YARN - our signature sock yarn! After years of using various sock yarns, I had the mill spin up this custom yarn for us, which embodies everything you'd want in an ideal sock yarn:
•4-ply : Results in round, defined, beautiful stitches. The more plies the better for items that will get lots of wear like socks. Your projects will last and last with very little pilling, strand breaking or wearing thin.
•BOUNCE FACTOR - this yarn is BOINGY! It has a ton of memory, or "resilience" (thus the name), which is ideal for socks since it stretches but bounces right back to its original length. Perfect!
•Fingering Weight: Perfect for hand-knit socks, but also virtually any other accessory you want to make, like hats, scarves and shawls, mittens, including baby and kid items. Wonderful for sweaters and other garments or even blankets! Sock yarn is so versatile and well-loved by many yarnies.
•Superwash Merino Wool = super soft, super fine wool. No itchiness here! Machine-washable! Hand-washing keeps your items looking the best the longest, but no worries if your socks accidently get tossed into the washer and dryer. They'll be just fine and won't felt or ruin. Whew.
•Yardage Per Skein: 366 m/400 yd (3,600 total yards for kit)

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
I knew when I ordered the Epic Rainbow kit that it would be amazing. Well, amazing doesn't do it justice. I have never seen yarn that has been more perfectly and unbelievably dyed to truly copy the colors of a rainbow. I showed the kit to several of my knitting friends and practically had to fight them to get it back. They were all more than willing to help me knit it up, but I am saving that for myself.
This yarn is so awesome to work with. The combination of colors is perfect for the Arabella shawl by SKEINO that I have been wanting to knit.
Even more amazing in person! The colors are so intense...gorgeous!...and on my favorite yarn base to boot. I can't wait to get something on my needles!
