Dreamy Color

We have a new batch of Classy from Dream in Color in some luscious new handpainted shades.

I love this for pretty much everything. The colors are saturated and semi-solid, but not crazy variegated. You get the interest and depth of the changing tones without any overwhelming pooling or flashing you might get from other handpainted yarns.

I've used it for kids sweaters, blankets, hats, and adult sweaters. Each skein contains 250 yards of pure merino, and it is machine washable. I also love that the yarn resists pilling quite nicely, so you won't end up with little fuzzballs all over your piece.

We only received ten skeins of each color, and some have already found a new home. Come and get it.
