Carnation Pinks Merino Solo Light
Merino Solo Light is 475 yds (433 m) / 110 g of 100% SW Merino spun in a slinky light fingering one ply. It knits up at 30 - 36 sts over 10 cm (4") on 3 mm (US 2) needles.
Carnation Pinks is a beautiful mid depth pink with some rare speckles created from the still kicking dyestock of a previous colorway. Once it's gone, it's gone forever. The speckles created when a dyestock is used up in this way are unlike anything deliberately created. They tend to be rare microspeckles and I swear are deliberately difficult to photograph though exceptionally fun to find while knitting!
The drape of this slightly rustic light fingering yarn is excellent, it takes dye beautifully but it’s single ply structure will pill and show wear under heavy use so choose UltraSock, Sock or Sock Light for children’s and hard-wearing items and save these slightly larger 110 g skeins for those items that will be cared for and cherished. For luxury single ply check out the Extrafine Merino Solo base yarn. This yarn can be machine washed, delicate cycle and dried on low heat but we opt to hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry. Please email for assistance and check out the base yarn page.
This yarn is hand dyed and ready to ship! While best practices are used to maintain consistency with all colorways, all hand-dyed yarn is unique. Identical skeins are the exception. Please double check your project requirements and order quantities to complete your project so that your skeins are best matched. If the quantity you require isn't available, email for special order accommodations.
