This amazing colorway, Garnet, is the first in the ongoing Birthstone Collection, and features many subtle variations of deep reds and wines, plus accents of a purple so deep, it's almost black. Gorgeous!

Skein weight: 135 g/4.8 oz.
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; do not agitate or wring. Rinse in cool water, and gently squeeze out excess water. Did I say do not wring? Lay on towels or drying rack to air-dry.
PROJECT IDEAS: If knitted on a fairly large needle (U.S. 11-13), you could make a cowl or hat from this 1 skein.
