NEW YORK AT NIGHT - deepest navy/teal - this has the overall appearance of a semi-solid, but close up, you can see all the gorgeous layers of colors
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!

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.
I love this yarn. its very soft and buttery, and comes in a very generous amount for the price. It is very high quality. (There was a slight warehouse smell to it, but once I let it out to air a bit, that went away.) One of the reasons I like to buy wool yarns is the way it feels on my hands while working with it, and I cannot wait to start working with it.
I've always been very impressed with these yarns. I was a bit disappointed with this one. The picture shows blue tones and when my 3 skeins came in, they were very obviously green tones. Thankfully the person I was making a scarf for still loved the colors and everything worked out ok. Still rating this as 4 stars because the yarn itself is amazing but the actual color versus picture was off quite a bit. Yes, I understand that the colors are not always exact because of the dying process, but these seemed very different.
