Red Christmas Dresses, Sparkling Holiday Yarn
This is a pretty tonal yarn with many shades of red, and added sparkle. It makes me think of the fancy dresses that people wear to parties during the Christmas season. The monitor does not begin to show the 'richness' 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.
