I don’t know why but these colours always scream Beetlejuice! at me. And…every so often, I just have to put them together in some skeins!
The way these two skeins are dyed will allow for long-ish sections of colour. Not self-striping but the way the skeins were dyed, half the skein is green and half is purple with some interspersed white…. so you are likely to get at least 10 to 15 stitches of each colour before it switches.
These skeins are so squishy and soft, a great substitution for mohair silk. Knit it alone, double stranded or stranded with another yarn and enjoy the gorgeous halo!
SURI SILK LACE
74% suri alpaca and 26% silk
50g/378 yards per skein
If you haven’t worked with suri silk lace before, you’re missing out! It is buttery soft, offers the most amazing halo, and is a great substitute for mohair silk lace! For more info on suri silk and to see it compared closely to mohair silk lace, you can check out my Mohair vs Suri Alpaca article where I share some samples and talk about my initial experiences with it!
If you would like three or more skeins, a new batch will be dyed for you to ensure they match as closely as possible.
NOTES RE HAND-DYED YARNS:
Be aware that colors may appear differently on different computer monitors, but every effort has been made to portray them as accurately as possible.
All of my yarns are hand dyed and, as much as I attempt to match, every batch is one-of-a-kind. Be sure to order what you need as matching future batches are not guaranteed.
When using hand-dyed yarns in a project that requires more than one skein, it is strongly recommended to alternate skeins every other row of knitting to even out any differences.
Lastly, as with any hand dyed yarn, please expect minor imperfections and some variation from skein to skein (even within the same batch), as each skein is individually hand painted.
