JUNE ALEXANDRITE '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.

I love the yarn itself, but the yarn I was sent looked nothing like the picture. I was disappointed that it was not more colorful. Will use it anyway since I like the yarn!

This is by far my most favorite yarn color. It keeps its glorious shimmery color after washing.

Fingering Pearlescent
4 Stars

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!!!!

Decadence
5 Stars

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!
5 Stars

This is the most gorgeous yarn! It's incredibly soft and has amazingly vibrant colors!

Pretty color
3 Stars

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.

Best colors EVER!
5 Stars

The combination of purple and teal are exquisite!!! My favorite color yet! :) Hope to see one more!

June Alexandrite Yarn
5 Stars

I am so well pleased to be in possession of this lovely yarn. It is not just lovely, the colour is outstandingly beautiful and well above any of my expectations of this yarn. Which were high to begin with. I usually knit for family and friends. I rarely keep a completed article for myself, but this yarn has grabbed my imagination by it's truly wonderful quality and I will be keeping this one for myself. My only disappointment is the fact I did not receive the advertised stitch marker, which should have been included with the yarn. The delivery time was well met and I will continue to purchase as needed. Regards!

I'm convinced!
5 Stars

When I saw the photo of this yarn, I was sceptical. Must be special lightingcto get those gorgeous colors, right? But, hey, I'm a yarn addict and had never bought from this company... Imagine my delight/surprise when I opened the oackage! Gorgrous colors, incredible feel AND 550 yards in the skein! I originally justified this purchase because June iscmy anniversary month, do it was sort of an anniversary present - right? Well, now I'm checking the calendar for other occasions to commemorate - 4th of July, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas... Hey, I'm covered for the rest of the year. Now to look at 2017!

Even more beautiful in person!

Absolutely love everything about this yarn. The merino silk is so soft and luxurious, and the colors are so vibrant! Just yummy! This is my first purchase of the birthstone-themed yarn color, and it definitely won't be my last.

Add this beautiful yarn to your collection!

I received my two skeins of Alexandrite yesterday. The colors are beautiful and deep. The yarn is so soft you almost can't feel it! I don't know what I'll knit with it yet. Any suggestions are welcome. Even though I put myself on a yarn diet, I knew I had to have this one the moment I saw it!

Stunning color!

Mine arrived today. This yarn is absolutely stunning! I can't wait to make my shawl with this!

Really captured the essence of alexandrite
5 Stars

Beautiful yarn with excellent hand and drape. Absolutely love it! The colours capture the colour shift of alexandrite very well. Postage was fast until it reached South Africa when it got bogged down in Customs and our local postal service but on the other hand, that only means it actually arrived on my birthday.

Beautiful yarn!
5 Stars

This yarn is SO soft! And the colors are absolutely stunning! I can't wait to make something luxurious with it.

OMG!!!!!

this is probably the most beautiful yet of the birthstone yarns - very excited

Exquisite colors and hand
5 Stars

Love the sheen and hand on this yarn. I love that it is this months color. Are/were there additional monthly colorways for each month? I would love to have a year in this yarn of all the 12 months stone colors! Just a thought and think it would be spectacular as this yarn is! Thank you!

Wonderful yarn

Another Chandi hit
5 Stars

Once again Chandi hits it out of the park with her coloring. The color saturation is smooth and flowing through the entire soft as butter hank. I love that the match stitch marked can also be used as a progress marker. Thanks Expression Fiber Art.

There aren't enough words ....
5 Stars

... to do justice to this yarn!! Whatever you see on this site pales in comparison to what it's like in real life! It is the softest, most color-rich yarn I have ever seen! I'm still trying to find the perfect pattern with which to use this unbelievable yarn. I dare say, if this is an example of the yarns put out by Expression Fiber Arts, I doubt that I will be going anywhere else for future yarn purchases!

Absolutely Beautiful
5 Stars

I have purchased the birthstone yarns every month. I purchase 2 skeins in the months that I don't have anyone celebrating a birthday, and extras for the other months. So, I purchased 2 skeins of the June yarns. Upon receiving them today, I fell in love with the awesome coloring. Needless to say, I've already submitted another order for 3 more skeins!! Definitely don't miss out of these beauties!!

Beautiful.

I just love this yarn. The colors are a little darker but still great. I haven't started anything with it as I have a few things I have to do first. I keep it near by so I can admire.

Oh So Soft
5 Stars

This is my first purchase from Expression Fiber Arts, although I've been wanting to buy for a while now. My birthday is in June so I thought I might as well splurge and get something for me. I'm so glad I did. This yarn is incredibly soft and smooth and actually does have a bit of natural shimmer to it. I only ordered one skein but I believe I want to make it into a cowl. The particular one I have my eye on needs a second skien in a contrasting color, so I'll be on the lookout for a silver skein of fingering weight to go with it. I believe at first glance this is a fantastic product and I can't wait to us it.

Drop Dead Gorgeous! :)
5 Stars

Even if June were not my birthday month (which it is), I would have fallen instantly in love with this yarn! The colors are spectacular and the yarn is incredibly soft! Love the stitch markers too! :)

A Pleasure to Knit With!
