Yarn Review: Speck-tacular Yarns “Wild Rose” Hand-Dyed Fingering

This hand-dyed yarn colorway is so unique! I love how the muted rose color is spattered with a subtle speckling of bright neons.

 

I love hand-dyed yarn.

 

The beautiful colorways that hand-dyers come up with are often very different from what you might find in an ordinary craft store.  A hand-dyed yarn colorway can give an otherwise simple project a very luxurious look.

So I was thrilled when Jennifer from Speck-tacular Yarns asked if she could send me a skein of her hand-dyed yarn to try!  Jennifer owns a small-batch, hand-dyed yarn business in Colorado Springs, and sells her yarn online in her shop.

The yarn I received is a colorway called “Wild Rose“, on her Everyday Fingering yarn base.  The base is a blend of Superwash Merino Wool and nylon, and it’s super squishy!  Because it has some nylon in it, this yarn would also be great for socks.

This is a mix of colors I would never have thought of, but I love it!  It’s a tonal blend of pale pink and a deep, soft rose, but with tiny neon speckles.  I am a huge fan of speckles in hand-dyed yarn, but I have never seen speckles this small before.  They add tiny, subtle pops of cobalt blue, neon pink, lime green, and teal.

She also sent a few stitch markers to match the yarn, and a tiny bottle of lavender oil.

 

I don’t normally take photos of skeins as I take them apart for winding, but it really shows all of the colors and speckles in the yarn.

I can’t wait to see how this yarn will look as knitted fabric.  I’ll definitely be designing a pattern with it, so stay tuned to see what I make!

 

Thanks so much to Jennifer at Speck-tacular Yarns for sending me this yarn to review!

Have you ever tried hand-dyed yarn?

Happy Yarning!
