You won’t be able to keep your hands off this soft, bouncy, bulky yarn! Alla Prima (formerly known as Array Super Bulky) is a chunky single-ply yarn made up of 100% Merino and beautiful, vivid colors.
The hand-painted colorways are the highlight of Alla Prima, which is named after a classic painting technique. Some hand-painted shades feature a wash of color on the cream base to coordinate with the hand-painted colors, and other shades let the natural wool act as a neutral base for the vivid colors. Hand-painted Alla Prima comes in hanks like it was dyed, and each hank is its own work of art.
Alla Prima also comes in coordinating solids, dyed with the same colors used for the multicolor hand-painted skeins. Incredibly soft and richly colored, it’s a yarn you’ll want to cuddle up with, making it a great choice for quick, dramatic cowls, scarves, and hats. Solid Alla Prima is conveniently put up in donut balls that require no rewinding.
Note: Due to the heavy saturation of the hand-painted colors, some bleeding may occur when washing. As a hand-painted yarn, colors may vary from skein to skein
