Christmas Candy, Sparkling Holiday Yarn
This is a beautiful tonal sparkling yarn, the softest I have ever dyed. 70% Fine Superwash Merino Wool, 5% Stellina, 25% nylon. The monitor does not display the softness nor the sparkle well enough. Soft red tones reminiscent of old fashioned candy, decorated with sparkles. 450 yards/3.5 ounces, fingerling weight yarn. This would work well in shawls, cowls, sweaters, vests, scarves and socks. I do not recommend a knitting needle larger than a US 5 or 6, or a crochet hook bigger than E, as the yarn is softly spun. Recommended gauge: 7-8 stitches per inch on US 1-3 needles. Recommended crochet hook: B-E. Even though this is a superwash wool, I still recommend that you hand wash it separately in cold water and lay flat to dry.
