Colourwheel with Cyan
Colourwheel with Cyan
This rainbow delight is a sibling to our original Colourwheel yarn, but now with extra blue!
Like the original, three quarters of the skein is a self-striping rainbow. But now, the other quarter is a beautiful solid blue, as opposed to the grey of the original.
Why the solid section? I like to think about the finished project when I’m planning stripes, and there are very few knits that use exactly one skein of yarn. I want my socks to have a full colourwheel without making them an awkward size I will never wear.
For many socks (and hats and cowls), about 300 m worth of rainbow seems to do the trick, with that extra 100 m of cyan so you can use as much or as little of it as you need. It’ll look intentional and well-planned but you only have to think about size, not about squeezing all the colours into the right place.
And if your project needs a smidge more than one skein rather than less? No problem! That’s why I also dye larger skeins. They have about 450 m worth of rainbow and 150 m of solid.This colourway is also a great choice for a reversible Musselburgh Hat by Ysolda. One regular skein is enough for one hat.
