Spearmint Leaves: Sparkling Holiday Yarn
This is a beautiful sparkly tonal yarn which reminds me of the spearmint candies shaped like little Christmas trees and leaves that my Grandma always put out on Christmas Eve. The monitor does not adequately show the softness and sparkle of this yarn. This is the softest yarn I have ever dyed. 70% Fine Superwash Merino, 5% Stellina, 25% nylon. 450 yards/3.5 ounces, fingerling weight. This is a softly spun yarn and would work well in socks, shawls, cowls, vests, scarves and sweaters. I do not recommend using larger than a US 5 or 6 knitting needle or a size E crochet hook. The recommended gauge is: 7-8 stitches per inch on US 1-3 knitting needles. Crochet hooks: B-E. Even though this is a superwash yarn I still recommend hand washing it separately in cold water. Lay flat to dry.
