You Can't Do That on Television! 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.
You Can't Do That on Televsion is super bright green and will bring major pop to your project. Reminiscent of gak on that kids network, this nearly neon will be the showstopper your project may need but unlike neon's it is light and wash fast and will stand the test of time. Sadly the cost of that longevity is it will not fluoresce under black light but it'll outlast your bangs, rubber bracelets and rollerskates! This colorway is repeatable and can be dyed to order on other bases though it will be less bright on non-superwash bases.
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.
