A Twist On A Classic: Rock Star XL in Be My Forever

  • $28.00

Now taking the stage... Rock Star XL, our beautiful BRAND NEW bulky-weight superwash merino base! Plump & springy and 100% made just for us in the USA, this awesome yarn is perfect for pretty much everything from thick, squishy hats and mittens to the warmest cardigans, & so much more! There's a whopping 100 yards in each 150g skein!

This colorway is called Be My Forever, inspired by the song by Christina Perri feat. Ed Sheeran and my October wedding.

This is a twist on a classic! Just what does that mean? To fully explain, I need to take you back to the source. The superwash merino used in our Rock Star bases is processed domestically in small batches. Part of the reason that's a good thing is while many places have a tendency to overtreat their merino, our supplier does not. Sometimes, though, the acid they use to superwash the wool isn't completely rinsed out when it gets to the mill and remains in until the yarn is dyed. This extra acid causes the dye to take more in some areas than others, resulting in a skein that looks marled. It's super cool, and I wish we could control it but at present, we can't. This means that every once in awhile, we get a really cool marled skein in a normal batch!
