Hand Painted Sport Weight Wool Yarn

Colorway Crossed Chevrons

Shirley is inspired by my Grandmother’s quilts- she was a true artist and one of my greatest inspirations. I will always learn from her incredible use of color! Makes excellent hexipuffs. Shirley is a moderately soft yarn, but it has sheen and loft, and makes a wonderful texture in knitting.

Crossed Chevrons is spectacular in part because of it’s size- the entire quilt is less than 2 feet wide! The monochromatic pallet of purples gives depth and interest without overwhelming. the Crossed Chevons quilt is pictured, this colorway is shown knitted in photo 3. Pictured knit swatches in the last photo are not this colorway but have a similar color variation and texture.

Approximately 2oz and 100yd per Ball.

Recommended needle size U.S. 3-5
Recommended gauge 20-24 st over 4 inches.

Fibers: 100% Wool
Care: Hand Wash, lay flat to dry
Shirley is not superwash, but is "shrink resistant" which means that it will shrink some if machine washed, but will not felt. If you wash it on cold and gentle, and do not tumble dry, it will hold up to machine washing.

My yarns are hand dyed in small batches using washfast, lightfast, and fade resistant professional grade acid dyes in a smoke-free and pet free studio. Colorways may be repeated, but they never come out exactly the same- this is the beauty and fun of hand dyed yarns. Please buy what you need for your project in one purchase, to ensure your skeins are from one batch.

I do my best to accurately capture colors, but due to variations in computer monitors, colors on the screen may differ.
