Sugar Plums, Sparkling Holiday Yarn
This is a pretty plum colored yarn with a sparkle. It makes me think of the Sugar Plum fairy in the Nutcracker ballets I have seen through the years. The monitor does not begin to show the 'sweetness' and softness of this yarn. This is the softest yarn I have ever dyed. 70% fine superwash merino wool, 5% stellina, 25% nylon. 450 yard/3.5 ounces, fingerling weight. This is a soft spun yarn so I do not recommend using needles larger than US 5-6 or crochet hook larger than an E. This yarn would work up nicely in socks, shawls, scarves, vests and sweaters. Even though this is a superwash wool, I highly recommend hand washing it separately in cold water and laying flat to dry.
