Sale! Gloss Fingering Yarn

$4.89 - $6.99 50g / hank  Original Price: $6.99


No need to panic - Gloss isn't going away for good! We are working on a color refresh, and will have fabulous new colors for you before the new year.

Gloss elevates the indulgence of handknit socks to a whole new level. Soft, cushiony Merino blended with the sheen and velvety texture of silk makes the socks a solace for your feet. The way light magically plays off the silk begs for textured stitches ranging from lace to cables. Imagine incorporating the qualities of Gloss beyond socks into lace scarves and shawls. Warm and brilliantly colored with an elegant drape - an heirloom to be enjoyed for years.

"I wanted to let you know I completed a beautiful sweater using Gloss sock yarn... I think you might want to take the "sock" out of the title!  I used a #5 needle and knit at 5.5 st/in.  It crochets nicely too, and the resulting fabric is beautiful and very soft and drapey.  Just wanted to let you know!"

I am currently on my fourth of five shawls that I am knitting for my daughters bridesmaids in October. It is beautiful to knit. I haven't found any joins and I am on my 17th skein of Navy gloss fingering.

Pros - Produced a nice fabric with good stitch definition. The "gloss" aspect is very subtle - not shiny or sparkly but rather just enough to lift it from matte. Cons - I gave it a fair rating because in one skein there was an undyed strand of yarn that I had to cut off, as well as a thick join that I was worried would show too much on an otherwise smooth fabric. These resulted in having to join new yarn twice in one glove.

I was looking forward to knitting with this yarn due to the fiber content. While balling the first of three skeins I found three breaks in one of the plies, maybe a quarter of the way in. I did not bother to ball the other two skeins. The yarn is going back.

This was the first Knitpicks yarn I have used and I loved it. It’s soft with a small amount of shine to it. I used about 5 skeins to crochet up a wrap and found no joins, the yarn was consistent throughout. Will be buying again.

Received a sample of Masala color. Good quality but the color is definitely not the golden brown like on the photo, it is darker rust color.
