JANUARY CARNATION - soft rainbow pastel hues. One of our "flower of the month" colorways.
YARN - Superwash Merino Wool Silk Pearlescent Worsted - (50:50) Smooth with a gorgeous gleam
Sure to be a favorite!
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. It has a lovely stretch and "memory" so it's a breeze to create hats, mittens, sweaters, socks, boot toppers, blankets and virtually anything else you'd need some elasticity and bounce for.
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!
•Worsted Weight: Ideal for next-to-skin accessories or sweaters, sweet baby items, blankets and so much more. Great for all skill levels, even beginners as it's a popular worsted weight thickness.
•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: 201 m/ 220 yd
•Weight: Approximately 115 g / 4 oz
•Recommended Knitting Needle Size: US 6-10
•Crochet Hook Size: G-J
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.
The colors are absolutely beautiful, I just looked at it for a while before deciding what to make - a shawl. It is a dream to work with and is even more beautiful knitted.
I was excited to receive this one as January is my birth month. I loved the colorway as pictured but receiving it in person the pictures don't do it justice. Its absolutely beautiful.can't wait to make it into something. :)
This is a beautiful colorway that is perfectly represented in the photo. It would be great for a baby item. It just shimmers on this base- I'm excited to try it!
The colors look like a rainbow of sherbet and cotton candy. Absolutely beautiful❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️ Softest yarn I have ever felt.
I haven't knit with it yet but it feels so nice and I love the colors. I am sure it will show up great in what ever I use it for.
The Carnation merino silk yarn is just delicious to the touch and the colors are as delicate as a flower. Very pleased with the purchase.
