Nurtured is comprised of Rambouillet, Targhee and Merino that is hand dyed "in the wool" prior to being mill spun, giving the yarn a unique heathered look.
This is a woolen-spun, worsted-weight yarn with 130 yards per 56-gram skein.
II knit Casapinka's Powder wrap in the colorway Picnic. The stitch definition of this yarn is great and the weight was perfect for the project. Working with it left a bit to be desired. It might be a little OCD but I found it necessary to pick out the many hay bits as I went along as there was quite a bit of it. If it were a sweater I was making I would have thought twice about continuing. The finished wrap is now washed and blocked and turned out lovely. The yarn softened up nicely, though it did bleed a lot, just a caution if using a light and a dark together I would wash the dark first and acidify the water on the finished project.
My yarn arrived quickly and customer service was amazing. So happy I discovered Indie Untangled - will order from them again!
The yarn is absolutely beautiful and so much fun to knit with
Love this yarn. It is beautiful both in color and quality.
The yarn is as promised and the color is more beautiful in person. I purchased it to make Casapinka's Powder wrap, so no photos yet. More to come....
