Hand-dyed Rhapsody Yarn: Downtown Carousel
Downtown Carousel is a wide range of purples and pinks with bits of golds and greens. The colors in it reminded me of the colors of the horses on a little coin-operated carousel in my downtown.
This unique yarn is a soft blend of 65% Wool/22% Nylon/13% Acrylic in bulky weight. It’s a combination of a single-ply thick and thin yarn that resembles handspun, with stitching from a serger, attaching to the yarn at varying intervals. It’s soft enough to be worn next to the skin. If you are interested in felting, the wool yarn will felt, but the stitching won’t, which will create very interesting effects. Works great for knitting, crochet, or weaving, and is available in many rich colors. Skeins even from the same dye lot will vary because they are hand-dyed. I hand-dye the yarn with professional acid dyes that are colorfast and washfast. Each skein is approx 1-3/4 oz. and 55 yds. 12 sts & 17 rows = 4″ in St st on #11US/8mm needle.
This yarn is used to knit the Trinidad Cowl Pattern!
(Note: I do my best to make sure the color looks accurate, but, everyone’s monitor is different. So the color might look different in real life than it does on your computer. Hand-dyed colors vary from batch to batch, so please be sure to buy enough for your project.)
