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?
