SLIPPERY SLOPE - During our most recent trip to Alaska, Tim and his father ventured out for a walk, while we were all snowed in. On that walk, Tim snapped a photo of this stunning snowscape, which became the inspiration for Slippery Slope. A peaceful, hushed whisper of the palest pink, the lightest lavender, and a faded blue.
YARN - Superwash Merino Wool Silk Pearlescent Worsted - (50:50) Smooth with a gorgeous gleam! Sure to be a favorite!
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. It has a lovely stretch and "memory" so it's a breeze to create hats, mittens, sweaters, socks, boot toppers, blankets, and virtually anything else you'd need some elasticity and bounce for.
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!
•Worsted Weight: Ideal for next-to-skin accessories or sweaters, sweet baby items, blankets, and so much more. Great for all skill levels, even beginners as it's a popular worsted weight thickness.

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 bought four skeins of Slippery Slope and I love it! It’s soft and forgiving (something a barely adequate knitter requires ?)…the soft sheen takes the yarn to a whole other level and did I mention it’s forgiving ?? Seriously, it’s gorgeous and in all likelihood I’ll be back for more. Thank you!
I cannot say enough about this yarn. It exceeded every expectation I may have had. Incredibly soft and wonderfully forgiving (for me, a must since I make more mistakes than most, I think).
