Knittique is now in its second year of producing exclusive, limited-edition hand-painted yarns, and this festive sparkling luxury merino wool/silk-blend yarn is one of the unusual novelty textures that are my specialty!
This fiery colorway, Red Flamingo, is inspired by the myriad bold hues in the elegant flamingo: coral, peach, orange, and red. Gorgeous!

Skein weight: 100 g/3.5 oz.
Gauge: U.S. #1 needle: 25 sts/37 rows = 4”
PLEASE NOTE: All yarns will be wound into center-pull balls before shipping, so they'll arrive ready-to-use! If you'd rather your yarn was left in skein form (as shown here), you must let us know when you place your order. Thank you!
Care: Hand wash in cool water with mild detergent. Rinse in cool water, and gently squeeze out excess water. Lay on towels or drying rack to air-dry.
PROJECT IDEAS: Since this is a sock-weight yarn, you can obviously make socks with it, and with its happy golden sparkle, it will make very special socks indeed! Of course, you can also use this yarn to make a fabulous scarf (1 skein should be enough, depending on your stitch, scarf width, etc.), or use 2 skeins to create a stunning shawl or wrap. There's also a FREE pattern for a lace scarf (scroll down past the cowl pattern) on the Knittique.com website!
P.S. Since Red Flamingo shares many of its colors with Peach Flamingo and Pink Flamingo (and they're all the same yarn type), you can mix and match them to create something truly unique!
