Sale! Muse Hand Painted

$10.49 - $14.99 100g / Hank  Original Price: $14.99


Be prepared to be inspired by the multicolor masterpieces of Muse. This superwash worsted weight Merino wool yarn is the first ever Knit Picks exclusive yarn crafted in Japan. The wonderfully soft and touchable merino is firmly twisted in a single strand, stable enough to discourage splitting and pilling while still enjoying the finish and drape of single-ply construction, with special care taken to ensure even thickness. At approx. 8 wraps per inch, the yard to weight ratio can be deceiving, with extra weight from the dense twist knitting into a satisfying and substantial fabric. With machine washable convenience, you’ll enjoy easy care hats, cowls and accessories with next-to-skin softness, or sweaters and garments bursting with color.

Meticulously hand dyed by Japanese artisans, each colorway of Muse Hand Painted only uses 3 basic colors, producing startling chromatic explosions with masterful color blending. Precise distribution of color minimizes the streaking and pooling other hand painted yarns are prone to.

I would love to buy three but nothing available in DK (4) weight. Please put a bug in someone's ear that the weight is sorely needed (of course this is only my opinion).

Would love to see something like this in DK or regular worsted. Don’t have the patience to use fingering. Why oh why are so few companies doing these weight in such wonderful colors. I never use fingering, seldom use worsted.

I ordered Thrill and Impulse. The Impulse I received isn't as vibrant as in the pictures, so much so that I wonder if I accidentally got Elation instead. Both colors are still great, just not as dark as they look online. The yarn is a tiny tiny bit stiff, but not anything that puts me off. Also enjoy how tight the twist is compared to Dapple, because the jacket I made out of Dapple is shedding/pilling after very few wears, where as I think the cardigan I'm making out of Thrill will hold up.

I ordered several colors of the handpainted. I started with the impulse color. It looks as vivid in person as it did on my computer. I started a hat on a circular needle. It turned out that I cast on too many, so I had to frog after the ribbing and redo it with fewer stitches. The yarn held up well to frogging. It has a bit of a halo. I had stitches split once or twice. I did not find any knots in this hank during winding.

I am FASCINATED by the colours. Wish you could produce in other weights also
