Sale! Bare Swish Worsted Yarn

$8.09 100g / hank  Original Price: $8.99

The workhorse weight of yarn now has even more appeal. It’s practically indestructible! The superwash treatment does not interfere with dye absorption at all. You will be delighted with the range and intensity of colors you can get from dyeing this yarn. Your finished garment will survive repeated machine washing and drying. You can combine your hand dye with any of the colors from Swish Worsted for truly innovative creations.

Note: For best machine wash results, turn the garment inside out and wash in cold water on a delicate cycle.

"When I’m looking for that ‘just right’, subtle semi-solid shade, I turn to our wide selection of Bare yarn and my rainbow of Jacquard acid dyes. I’ve found that dyeing is very economical for projects that require small amounts of many colors. Last year I dyed two hanks of our Bare Swish Superwash to make the Tulip Baby Cardigan -- custom colors at an affordable price!"
-Melissa B., Knit Picks Art Director

I have made several wedding afghans of my own design & countless ganseys for little relatives from this exquisitely soft and washable yarn.

I use this bare yarn exclusively for all my baby blankets. It works beautifully for many stitch types and I think the lack of dye makes the fibers particularly soft and lofty. Highly recommend.

I absolutely ADORE this yarn! Swish is one of my very favorites, due to how soft and beautiful it is, and this bare/undyed yarn is FABulous, especially for someone who is relatively new to dying... don't have to worry about accidentally felting the yarn! Knits up beautifully whether it's dyed or undyed.

Just tried this yarn for the first time after receiving it as a gift. It is a soft, springy yarn that produces beautiful stitch definition. Love it for one of my favorite types of knitting--Aran. Since knitting is, for me, a largely tactile enjoyment, it feels marvelous in the hand. Very pleasantly surprised...and now must stashbust to justify ordering a mess of it. :D

This is my g0-to yarn for baby sweaters. And thick socks. It washes well, and knits up sweetly with great stitch definition.
