Bare Palette Fingering Yarn

$6.49 100g / hank

If you enjoy classic colorwork designs like Fair Isle, dyeing your own color combinations can take your knitting to a new level. Imagine being able to control every nuance of color as you plan your sweater. It’s a magical experience. A really fun technique is to dye this yarn in a long self-striping sequence and then knit it with a solid color of Palette in a slip stitch pattern that creates faux Fair Isle - simple knitting that only looks like you were working several colors at the same time. This yarn also felts very well because it has not been bleached.

Very soft, natural yarn; I'm looking forward to dyeing with it soon! :) One critique, however; there are only two ties per skein (I believe the recommended quantity is at least 4 ties to a skein), and they are tied rather tightly, which does lead to improper penetration of the dye. I've replaced the ties on mine with looser and more numerous ties :)

The 100% Peruvian Highland sheep wool yarn is very soft and warm. It´s a perfect hand knitting yarn A Peruvian Highland sheep are a cross between Corriedale (for strength and long fiber length) and Merino sheep.(for softness and fineness). After working a few projects with this yarn I've grown to love its qualities. It is a highly recommendable wool to choose when you want to work with a good product!

This is a lovely yarn to work with the wool is nice and soft and I've had great success with RIT dye, pretty good success with natural dyes, and I'm going to test some jacquard acid dyes later. It also looks very nice undyed. I am also knitting up a lace stitch sweater using this and the yarn is holding up nicely.
