Take the Black

0.00

Ladies, a little black dress can make you feel amazing. Who doesn't love a good black? Feeling moody? Grab your black. Want to be a bombshell pairing a striking black garment with a ruby red lip? Black. Just trying to keep your head down and make it through the day? Pick out some black. Want a color that looks good on everyone? Take the black. 

Men (I haven't forgotten about you), what colors do you ask for time and again? Black, grey, and green. Never fear, this black colorway will keep you looking classically dapper.

KNITTERS OF ALL SEXES: This black color is a tonal black. "What does that mean? Black is black." This color mixes blacks with charcoal grays and adds interest to a basic black fabric, gives dimension and calls attention to your patterning, and most importantly allows you to more easily see your stitches because it gives you a black garment that is less challenging to knit. Rejoice.

All of my yarn is hand dyed and every effort was taken to ensure that the color in the picture is representative of the actual skein. As a hand dyed yarn, however, every skein of yarn will be slightly different than the original, even within the same batch. Please note that monitor colors vary.

Washing: 
This yarn is machine washable in cool water on a gentle cycle or in a lingerie bag, air dry. Hand washing is recommended to extend the life of the yarn.

All yarn is washed and rinsed but some mild bleeding may occur. I encourage you to wash your yarn by itself the first time. 

All items are created in a smoke-free home.
