Muse Hand Painted

$14.99 100g / Hank


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 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
