Vintage Reds, Worsted, Suri Alpaca & Merino
Hand-Painted in-store with shades of deep reds and pinks - it also has a muted, soft mood. Hand painting the yarn creates more consistent color pattern for your knitting or crocheting.
Dyer, Criss Chaney, brings us one of her new hand-painted colorways. Our latest yarn painting method allows her to set the dye exactly where she wants, creating unique effects once knit up. This will enhance your project allowing you to play with pooling your beautiful yarn. It also means hand painted batches will be more uniform for a multi-hank project - several hanks would make a lovely shawl.
Just one 220 yard worsted (Mary) Merino and Suri Alpaca hank will create a gorgeous hat or another accessory.
