SAGUARO - a radiant, blackened rainbow!
•Perfect for hand-knit socks, shawls, modern baby clothes and hats, accessories, mittens, stuffed animals and anything else you can think of!!
"RESILIENT" SUPERWASH MERINO WOOL SOCK YARN - our signature sock yarn! After years of using various sock yarns, I had the mill spin up this custom yarn for us, which embodies everything you'd want in an ideal sock yarn:
•4-ply : Results in round, defined, beautiful stitches. The more plies the better for items that will get lots of wear like socks. Your projects will last and last with very little pilling, strand breaking or wearing thin.
•BOUNCE FACTOR - this yarn is BOINGY! It has a ton of memory, or "resilience" (thus the name), which is ideal for socks since it stretches but bounces right back to its original length. Perfect!
•Fingering Weight: Perfect for hand-knit socks, but also virtually any other accessory you want to make, like hats, scarves and shawls, mittens, including baby and kid items. Wonderful for sweaters and other garments or even blankets! Sock yarn is so versatile and well-loved by many yarnies.
•Superwash Merino Wool = super soft, super fine wool. No itchiness here! Machine-washable! Hand-washing keeps your items looking the best the longest, but no worries if your socks accidently get tossed into the washer and dryer. They'll be just fine and won't felt or ruin. Whew.

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.
This is one of the prettiest skeins I have ever purchased and received. I'm not sure about 7 full colors but it is so stunning as a variegated. I've put it together with several colors to make a shawl.
Sadly, my skein was a very dull, and quite honestly ugly, “almost” rendition of the pictured skein. The description says “blackened rainbow” and the photo shows all 7 colors, but my skein has a blackened purple so dark that honestly, it is blackish-brown, some teal, some maroon, and a very not at all pretty brownish color that may be meant to represent yellow. It is not at all pretty. I do, however, love the Resilient base, so, maybe I’ll figure something out to knit with it. I would have LOVED it, had it truly been as pictured. It is not. Store Note: Sorry you are not happy with your skein. Feel free to contact us and we will work out a solution.
Just received this beautiful yarn. The colors are fantastic, soft to the touch. I can't wait to get started on a pair of socks. I'll post a picture when I'm done.
