JUNE ALEXANDRITE - absolutely stunning - resembling the color-changing purple and teal alexandrite! One of our birthstone yarns.
YARN - DEWY DK WEIGHT - 70% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Nylon, 10% Silk
This yarn is sumptuous. Ultra-soft and squishy, and sure to be a favorite. Machine-washable, with a hint of "dewy" glow from the silk and strength and longevity from the nylon. I had the mill spin this custom yarn to these exact specs so you'd have a versatile DK weight yarn not only beautiful to look at but also delightful to work with.
•4-ply : This produces a round, plump yarn, for beautiful, defined stitches!
•DK Weight (stands for Double Knitting): This weight of yarn is thinner than worsted weight and thicker than sport weight. It's incredibly versatile and can knitted or crocheted into an endless number of wonderful items. All types of accessories from head to toe...sweaters are amazzzing... soft, cozy, long-wearing afghans, and loads more. This yarn is ideal for baby items too, due to the softness and ability to be machine-washed.

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.
Gorgeous color and lovely feeling yarn. Plans to make a hat when I finish my other WIPs. Cannot wait!
This is beautiful yarn, and always high quality from EFA. Personally, I was a little disappointed, because mine was mostly black and purple with very little teal. It didn't match the photo, but I understand each batch is hand dyed, so they can vary.
I received my yarn today, and not only did I fall in in love with it's gradient colors and softness, but so did my daughter!! Now to find the perfect pattern to really bring out the beauty of this yarn.
Took my breath away! I am always thrilled to receive my EFA orders, and this was no exception. The Alexandrite colorway on DK yarn base is perfectly GORGEOUS in person. Dk is always a dream to work with; I can't keep my hands off of it! Hoping that this product sticks around for a while ;)
