Knittique is now in its second year of producing exclusive, limited-edition hand-painted yarns, and this fabulous flag yarn is one of the novelty fibers I specialize in!
This amazing colorway, Bronze Age (from my super-new Minerals Collection), is mostly taupe-y-bronze, accented with bits of deep grey and lighter bronze. Gorgeous!
Interesting color note: This yarn was hand-painted in the same colorway, using the palette shown here, as our Superwash-wool sock yarn— but it looks quite different! Since this yarn is nylon, it absorbed the various colors in a way that blends them together much more than in the wool skein.

*Note: While this yarn can be worked alone (as shown in the swatch), it is more frequently carried along with another yarn.
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; you could also put it in your dryer IF it's with no heat at all, such as a gentle cycle.
PROJECT IDEAS: If knitted alone on a fairly large needle (U.S. 10.5-13), you could make a cowl or small scarf from this 1 skein. Ticklish also works wonderfully well when combined with another strand, in which case it would go further, since you'd presumably be knitting the combination on larger needles.
