JUNE ALEXANDRITE MERINO SILK PEARLESCENT FINGERING

$30.00

JUNE ALEXANDRITE - absolutely stunning and shimmering - resembling the color-changing purple and teal alexandrite! 

YARN - Superwash Merino Wool Silk Pearlescent Fingering - (50:50) Smooth with a gorgeous gleam - A fingering weight version of our popular Pearlescent Worsted Weight!

Sure to be a favorite and loaded with yardage!

MERINO WOOL is ultra soft, creamy to the touch, cloud-like and breathes so you stay comfortable and cozy. We had these spun with a very fine merino wool so it's incredibly soft and wonderful for next-to-skin accessories and garments.

MULBERRY SILK is a dream... it glows and gleams and takes the dye so well, that the colors just pop like crazy. It also contributes to the lovely softness.

~When you combine these two fibers into a single ply yarn like this, you get subtle differences in tone as the wool and silk take the dye slightly differently. The colors truly appear to be iridescent and other-worldly. 


•1-ply : For ultra shimmer and glow!
•Fingering Weight: Luxurious, creamy, silky and luscious. Perfect for next-to-skin accessories like cowls, shawls, scarves, hats, fingerless mitts and so much more.
•Superwash Merino Wool - Mulberry Silk blend (50% of each) - hand-wash only for best results. Super soft like buttah, with a shine that just won't quit.
•Yardage: 503 m/ 550 yd
•Weight: Approximately 115 g / 4 oz
•Recommended Knitting Needle Size: US 0-7
•Crochet Hook Size: B-G


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.

June Alexandrite fingering
5 Stars

Fingering Pearlescent

I have bought a few different colors in this yarn base. While the yarn is very soft and the colors vibrant, I have found now that I am working with it, that the high silk content makes it fuzz. It looks kind of like angora after knitting with it. You also need to pull from the outside of your yarn ball. When I pulled from the inside, the friction of two strands rubbing against themselves made fuzz rings that tied the yarn into knots.

Wonderful yarn, gorgeous colours!
5 Stars

This is a beautiful yarn to look at and a beautiful yarn to work with. The colours are spectacular and the colour way is close to my heart as my husband just gave the most beautiful alexandrite ring for our 20th wedding anniversary. I designed a shawl to celebrate our anniversary especially for this yarn.

Absolutely beautiful - June Alexandrite Yarn!
5 Stars

The yarn is stunning! The photo doesn't do it justice -- deep, rich colors and so soft! The accompanying stitch marker is adorable. I haven't decided what to make with it yet but I know that the end product will be beautiful.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!

When I saw the picture for this yarn I thought it was beautiful, it turns out that the picture does not do it justice! This yarn is spectacular not only in color but in texture. The colors are vibrant and have a nice bit of shimmer to them. The colorway makes me think of a peacock with his feathers all puffed out. The texture is so soft that I just want it to touch me. I do not know what this loveliness will become but whatever it is, it's going to be sensational! Thank-you for such lovely fibers!

My favorite skein of hand painted yarn!
5 Stars

I love it! It's so soft & shiny! I cannot wait to knit it up. My only problem is I don't know what to make. Chandi, do you have any knitting pattern ideas for it? I have 2 email addresses. I don't remember which I used when ordering. If this 1 isn't it, email me, and I'll give you the other one.

Stunningly Beautiful
5 Stars

The color in the photo is beautiful, but when I received the yarn it was even more stunning! It is silky smooth and I cannot wait to begin the shawl I have planned to make for my mother.

Some yarns are pretty, but this one is PRETTY!

Yarn is super soft and shiny. I bought two skeins a couple weeks apart because I wasn't overly concerned about dye lot. One skein was dark teal and purple with no variation to lighter as in photo. Still very beautiful color though. The second skein arrived a few days ago, as I was putting it on my swift for winding, I noticed several areas that still showed a whitish color, as if those areas didn't get enough dye. This isn't going to affect my use as its two separate projects, so I am not returning, just hoping too much dye doesn't come out when washing.
