A good choice for easy-launder mittens, scarves, sweaters and especially garments for children. This is an extremely soft, gently-spun single-ply yarn that almost resembles a Lopi-style yarn but without the scratchiness. It's slightly thick-and-thin. Because of the gentle spinning we've found the skeins sometimes have a knot or two where they have been repaired during spinning at the mill.
This yarn takes dye beautifully, whether you are using acid dyes, food colouring, Kool-aid or even natural dyes. Just bear in mind that Superwash yarn strikes with acid dyes so quickly that it can be very tricky to get a decent solid tone. Use that to your advantage like we do, to get interesting semi-solids or go crazy with hand painting. We highly recommend this yarn to first-time dyers!. If you reskein your yarns, do so slowly with this yarn or snagging on the swift will cause breaks.
