Painted Sky Superwash

New for fall 2019, this machine washable yarn is soft and machine washable.

Painted Sky is a popular alternative to the very expensive Spincycle yarns that some of the popular shawls and cowls on Ravelry are knit with (i.e. Nightshift by Mowry). Painted Sky features the same "marl" yarn construction (2 plies each variegated and spun in long repeats) for a colorful effect. And so many lovely color gradations to use in combination for these simple Mowry projects!

Great for kids knitting as well.

Recommended knit at 4.5- 5 sts/inch on a US 7-8, each skein features 219 yards.

It is soft and lovely-stay tuned for more colors as they arrive! We also are stocking basically the same yarn, but in different colorways, from Cascade. It is called Wave and kntis at the same gauge as Painted Sky.

If you're looking for lighter versions of this type of yarn, check out Edition Three for a dk gauge, Zauberball Crazy or Painted Desert for a fingering gauge!
