This skein stripes through 32 various hand-dyed colors that do not repeat. I spun it so that it will certainly stripe through the rainbow (sort of) – it begins with white then goes through yellows, oranges, reds, brown, black, environment-friendlies, blues, purples, and grays. I dye the fiber in large batches, and all the skeins presently readily available are from the exact same dyelot.
You can see some photos of one skein of Yarnbow knit into an extra-large cowl here (the color development is the exact same in all skeins):
The wool I made use of in this yarn came from the DHF farm in the falkland islands. They do not utilize any herbicides, pesticides, dips, footbaths or routine injections on their sheep, and no bleach or other chemicals in the processing of the wool – so it is some of the purest, cleanest wool you will find on earth. It is really soft and lofty, as their sheep are a merino crossbreed, but the medium and long wools crossed into the sheep mean the yarn is stronger and holds up better with time than merino.
This yarn is about a bulky weight, so I ‘d suggest around US 13+ knitting needles. This skein is plenty of yarn for a big hat, scarf, a pair or more of fingerless gloves, small legwarmers, or??
