Hand-painted, luxury merino/silk/alpaca sport-weight yarn in Fire Poppies (deep orange-reds/coral/pink/bronze))
Knittique is now in its second year of producing exclusive, limited-edition hand-painted yarns, and this sumptuous merino/silk/alpaca yarn is one of the luxury fibers I specialize in!
This glowing colorway, Fire Poppies, from my Modern Landscape collection, is hand-painted with several vibrant shades of coral, orange, fuchsia, and gold, evoking a sunny afternoon in a field of poppies. Gorgeous, especially in this luxurious yarn!

Skein weight: 100 g/3.5 oz.
Gauge: U.S. #2 needle: 24 stitches/32 rows = 4”*
*Note: In the last photo, the one with the 2 swatches, there's additional gauge information for the mistake-stitch rib swatch. And isn't it interesting how different the exact same yarn looks when knitted in a different stitch?
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 (don't wring) out excess water. Lay on towels or drying rack to air-dry.
PROJECT IDEAS: You could easily make a cowl or smallish scarf from just 1 skein; since this yarn is predominantly wool, you could use a larger needle than usual (U.S. #5-7, for example), depending on your stitch pattern. This colorway would look amazing in lace! With 2-3 skeins, I'd think about making a capelet, lace shawl, or larger scarf, the better to wrap up in this gorgeous luxury yarn!
There's also a FREE pattern for an easy lace scarf (scroll down past the cowl pattern) on the Knittique.com website!
