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.
Lovely soft yummy yarn but the colour does not have the depth as it appears in the photo - which I was looking for. Do you have one that has a deeper yellow in the stash? Maybe I can exchange it?? Love your yarns though, it is always exciting getting packages from you :)
It's only just arrived, so I can't speak to how it knits up, but it's beautifully soft, so I'm very excited to work with it. The color is just slightly less intense than I thought it might be, but I think that will contribute to wearability, and the overall range of tones is beautiful and what I expected from the photos. Overall a beautiful product that I'm very happy to have in my collection.
I love the yarns I have purchased from Expression Fibers and this new alpaca silk base is no exception. It is soft and works up well - holds its shape and looks amazing. I was worried that this color would be too yellow but it is not at all - it is perfect! The small flecks of other colors and the different shades of yellow make it a very interesting dye. I have no hesitation on buying other colors in this base yarn. Thanks Chandi for more beautiful yarn!
