This is a lovely yarn that would be perfect for summerwear, as an alternative to cotton. It has a softer feel to the hand than cotton but soy shares many of the same properties. It's a relatively thick fingering weight that makes for a fairly quick knit, depending on the project of course. NOTE this yarn has a nubbly texture with random flattened areas that are not obvious until during knitting. Despite this, it holds stitch detail quite well.

Soy fibre is made from soybeans, and acts like a protein fibre in the manner it takes up dye. Use regular acid dyes, food colouring, Kool-Aid or natural dyes with the usual mordants. We find this base is absolutely gorgeous in rich jewel tones and also looks great in pastels. It dyes up close-to-solid with very little effort, but hand painting and other techniques would work just fine too.
