OLD LIBRARY BOOKS - a wildly popular colorway in the past, so we're bringing it back... a charming blend of lilac (with some possible hints of blue/teal), golden hints of light tan and cream. Reminds me of well-loved books on a shelf.
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.
•Yardage: 230 m / 250 yd
•Weight: 115 g / 4 oz
•Recommended Knitting Needle Size: US 6-8
•Crochet Hook Size: G-H
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'm not gonna lie-I bought this specifically so I could use it as "scrap" yarn for the super funky, sexy shawl off of the blog (shown here: http://blog.expressionfiberarts.com/2012/06/06/sexy-knitted-shawl-pattern/ ). I love how the colors came together! I will say, though, that as with all hand-dyed yarns (and also computer color settings) that the colors you see on your screen might be a bit more vibrant than the skein is when you hold it in your hand. That said-I am NOT disappointed at all by the colorway. It is just gorgeous.
