Spincycle Yarns Dyed In The Wool

$ 34.99
The gals at Spincycle Yarns have fulfilled their dream to merge the beauty and texture of a handspun yarn with a more efficiently produced millspun yarn. Because the fiber is dyed before it's spun, colors meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations. The overall effect is of a balanced, seamless yarn with slow and dramatic color transitions. Each skein is unique, so if you're planning a larger project, allow for nuance.

 

Fiber: 100% superwashed American wool
Length: 200 yards (182m)
Gauge:  5.0 to 8.0 sts = 1 inch on US #2-5 (2.75-3.75mm)
Care: Hand or machine wash gently, lay flat to dry.

"Lovebirds" by Kate Oates

A little birdie told me…that you need him on a sweater with his true love! This array of geometric colorwork is worked seamlessly from the top down with yoked increases & short row shaping both at the shoulders and the bottom. The gentle A-line shape of the body combined with extra length at the hem complements curvy and straight body types alike.

Options are provided for two different body and sleeve styles: classic stockinette or a simple cable along with short or long sleeve lengths. Instructions are provided to work body inside out for less purling, if desired. One to four inches (2.5-10 cm) ease is recommended. Colorwork is charted. Because a few rounds feature longer floats, this pattern is recommended for knitters with prior stranded colorwork experience. This pattern is available on Ravelry.

Karen chose Dyed in the Wool and Crave Caravan in colorway "Authenticity" for her Lovebirds sweater.
