This color is NOT the variegated yarns your mother (or mine) knitted dish cloths with, but instead, this is dyed in the beautiful random color splashes we have in the new indie dyed yarns.
This yarn would be great in a brioche two-color stitch along with a contrasting or complimentary single-color yarn, or in a cute baby blanket, summer sweater, or shawl.
THIS IS COTTON?!
We've been looking for any interestingly dyed cotton for a decade. The number of dyers who have told us over the years that they don't dye cotton, just wool.... Period. How can we count? There have been too many.
Yarn - sock weight - pima cotton 218 yards
Needle - US4, 3.5 mm
5 stitches/in = 10 stitches in 2" = 20 stitches in 4"
7 rows/in = 14 rows in 2" = 28 rows in 4"
Washed and dried in the dryer until damp, then shaped and laid out to final dryness.
5.25 stitches/in = 10.5 stitches in 2” = 21 stitches in 4”
7.25 rows/in = 14.5 rows in 2” = 29 rows in 4”
Pima Sock Weight - 218 yards - $18/skein
Fingering weight - 437 yards - $26/skein
Sport weight - 164 yards - $17/skein
Worsted Weight - 190 yards - $17/skein
As I said, this is not dishcloth cotton, and the price reflects the time to hand-paint the yarn.
We are so in to this yarn!!
