$ 15.00

Please keep in mind that these are hand-dyed yarns and colors may vary from the photos. This is part of the beauty of hand-dyed yarns.

Our Star, Gayle Roehm, will be guiding you through an exploration of beautiful Japanese Stitches from charts, and has chosen Neighborhood Fiber Co's single-ply Rustic Fingering base to make your stitches pop. Made with 100% Merino wool, it is not superwash, this yarn feels a bit softer, blooms more, is easier to block into shape -especially with lace - and smells sheepy in the best way.

Neighborhood Fiber Co dyed this mossy green colorway exclusive for Knit Stars. The green is named "Nippori" after the fabric district in Tokyo.
