Slick V3 - Singles Special

Regular price $35.00

Tax included.

I'm still mucking about with this colour, Slick, that I first made in 2015. This is the third recent batch...

Batch three is still very dark, like a very dark charcoal nearing black, but the undertones are much more obvious. I can see pink, purple, red, blue, green and yellow. It’s more like a blackened rainbow sort of effect. In this batch the pinks and greens are more dominant.

There are no very light patches, just some lighter charcoal.

The third picture is very over exposed so you can see a bit more of the underlying tones. And just for fun, there's a pic of before it got its black overcoat.

(This is a very saturated colourway. I have washed it and the rinse water is clear. If you are planning to knit this with a light colour, I would recommend knitting a small test swatch with all the colours you're using, and wash and block in the usual way. Cold water and a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid is a good bet!)

Matt and squashy, this is a singles spun yarn, that knits at a 4ply gauge. It's perfect for accessories and garments (not socks!!). (This base may look a little kinky in the skein, rest assured it lies flat and smooth when knitted up!)
