This yarn stripes through 32 different hand-dyed colors that do not repeat. I spun it so that it will stripe through the rainbow (sort of) - it starts off with white and then goes through yellows, oranges, reds, brown, black, greens, blues, and purples. I dye the fiber in large batches, and all the skeins currently available are from the same dye lot. This is the exact same colorway as my Yarnbow striping yarn, but dyed onto a beautiful natural brown Blue Faced Leicester wool, giving the colors a striking depth and sheen.

You can see some pictures of one skein of the regular version of Yarnbow knit into an oversized cowl here (the color progression is the same in all skeins):

The wool I used in this yarn is a naturally colored dark brown Blue Faced Leicester wool. BFL is a longwool breed, but it tends to be much softer and loftier than is typical of longwool. It has a silky drape and a slight shine to the fibers, and the long staple length means that the yarn will hold up better over time than many fine wools. The yarn may develop a slight halo with use.

This yarn is about a bulky to super bulky weight, so I'd recommend around US 13+ knitting needles. This skein is plenty of yarn for a big hat, cowl, scarf, a pair or two of fingerless gloves, smallish legwarmers, or ??
