Try our watermelon yarn : most favorite hand-dyed self-striping sock yarn !
Posted on April 29 2015
Our watermelon yarn is hand-dyed in our workshop on fingering superwash merino wool.
Made of 80% merino and 20% nylon, this delicious yarn is the ultimate sock yarn !
When you knit or crochet with watermelon self-striping yarn, the yarn will create a striped watermelon design on its own (seeds included !!) without you having to do any yarn color changes.
The way we dye our watermelon yarn is very unique : we make sure to create a nice gradient look between colours stripes so color changes won't fall in the middle of rows or round.
To maximize effect of watermelon self-striping yarn, you might use it for knitwear with small circumference such as socks, mittens, hats and scarves. One skein will be enough to knit a pair of adult standard socks.
Here is some project pictures of our watermelon yarn, most of them from Ravelry members :-)
