Neighborhood Fiber Co. Rustic Fingering "Tokushima" (single skein)

$ 28.00

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 has enough yardage for many shawlette and accessory patterns. Since 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 will be dyeing this ethereal colorway exclusively for Knit Stars. It is named "Tokushima" after the town that is the birthplace of indigo dyeing in Japan.
