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 have yet to be disappointed with the yarn from Expression Fiber Arts. This DK yarn is very soft and has a light sheen , which adds depth to the colors. The Cancer colorway ranges from a very pale pink to a deep cranberry. I usually favor cool tones, but when I saw this yarn, I could not resist adding to my collection and working it up into the perfect garment - - perhaps a shawl or better yet a boho style vest.
