Hand-painted, shiny novelty flag-style yarn in Pink Rubies (deep pink/fuchsia/red)
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 textures I specialize in!
This beautiful colorway, Pink Rubies, from Knittique's ongoing Birthstone Collection, is hand-painted with several shades of red, magenta, and fuchsia that add dimension and intrigue to what looks (at first) like an ordinary solid color. I happen to like my rubies on the pink side of red, so all my Ruby yarns are definitely more magenta than red-red, although there is actually red in them. Gorgeous!

Skein weight: 50 g/1.75 oz.
Gauge: U.S. #10 needle: 13 sts = 4”*
*Note: While this yarn can be worked alone (as shown in the swatch), it is more frequently carried along with another yarn; your gauge could vary considerably as a result.
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; the 6.5" x 44"scarf (shown here in the Pacific Ombré colorway) was made on a #10 needle, with 20 stitches, in garter stitch.
Ticklish also works wonderfully well when combined with another strand, such as the mohair or other yarns with textural interest; combining strand would help make both yarns go further, since you'd presumably be knitting the combination on larger needles.
