Yardage: approx. 218 yd./198 m.
Gauge: 4.5-5 stitches per 1" on US size 7-9 needles
Snow crunching underfoot, you rush home from work exhausted and ready for a night in...but wait! It's Christmas Eve and you still haven't finished your shopping! A modern twist on traditional Christmas colors, this busy speckle is reminiscent of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Hot magenta pink, blue-green juniper, and spicy reddish orange flash across a bright white background. These colors remind me of the brightly colored aluminum trees and kitschy decorations of the 1950s and 60s...or the modern interpretations at a tacky mall store. This lively speckle will give you a dose of fun in your crafting...just don't wait til Christmas Eve to cast on!
With incredible bounce and super soft feel, the Bombshell Worsted weight is sure to become a favorite! 100% superwash merino makes this smooth, round yarn perfect for all types of projects. The luscious 4 ply spin makes this beautiful yarn a little drapey but still strong enough to hold it's shape. When you knit with this lovely fiber, the yarn feels like butter sliding along your needles! Try it for sweaters, wraps, hats, gloves, and baby clothes...even home wares!
Superwash merino makes this yarn an easy care machine washable option. Make sure to use cold water and the gentle setting on your machine. Tumble dry low, or lay flat to dry. You may want to hand wash in cold water to ensure an even longer lasting project. Always test your washing instructions on a swatch!
I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, be sure to alternate rows to ensure variegation. Please note that each skein is a unique work of art and may not exactly match the photos, but will be very close. I may reskein your yarn before shipping to avoid tangles if necessary.
