We currently have 1 in stock.

Knittique is now in its second year of producing exclusive, limited-edition hand-painted yarns, and this sumptuous wool/silk yarn is one of the luxury fibers I specialize in!

Continuing Knittique's Birthstone Collection yarns, this subtly amazing colorway, Tahitian Pearl, is my latest interpretation of June's birthstone. Starting with a base of deep black/charcoal/greenish tones, each skein is sparked with accents of lighter greens and smoky lavender, air-dried, then dyed again in a wash of transparent mix of black, midnight blue, and deepest purple. Gorgeous!

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: With its tremendous yardage, 1 skein of Silky Merino should be enough for 1 pair of adult-size socks. Please note that I can't promise that, because I don't know what pattern you might be using, but in my experience so far, somewhere between 300-400 yards of a sock-weight yarn is enough for 2 socks (not knee socks, though).

This particular yarn is very soft, but with its high wool content, it would even work on significantly larger needles for something other than socks; this would create a lovely mesh effect that would look amazing in this hand-painted colorway! I could definitely see this worked into a beautiful lace shawl.
