Caterpillar is a cheerful, springy textural yarn using the coil art/novelty spinning technique. The merino fiber was hand-painted by Funhouse Fibers, and has been plied against tea-dyed commercial cotton. There are also several dozen champagne-coloured Swarovski crystals snuggled into lofty, non-coiled areas of the yarn for a little extra glitz. The coils however are the show-stealers, scattered generously throughout the skein, little soft, puffy caterpillars of green, gold, pink, and browns. Photo #4 is most colour accurate (on my monitor).

A whopping 260 yards, 4.05oz, highly variable WPI. The plain 2ply sections are a fingering weight; the beehive coils are on average about .5" in diameter and 1-2" long. Crystal segments are a bulkier weight than the plain 2ply, and each crystal is strung onto the wool itself and then wrapped securely into place. The resulting bouncy, textured yarn was washed & finished rigorously to ascertain the durability of the coils; I was satisfied that they should hold up to knitting and wear.

For more information on this yarn and a zillion more pictures, find me on ravelry! My username is gizmometer.

This yarn WILL FELT. While I did test its integrity, it should still be gently hand-washed only.

New to knitting with art yarns? I can help! Just convo me and I can make suggestions for techniques and/or patterns.

If you are not a knitter/crocheter but would like this yarn made into something, convo me for more information!

Spun & stored in a smoke- and pet-free environment.
