We were really excited to find this yarn! From Universal, Classic Shades is a soft self-striping roving style yarn in a sophisticated color palette. What makes it so spectacular it that it's machine washable! The colors are really pretty - with gentle color striping. Classic Shades is worsted weight and the blend of wool and acrylic gives it a sheen similar to silk. Use it to knit modular and mitered knits as well as sweaters, afghans, scarves, shawls, hats, and mittens. Oh, and it's great for baby items too, since it's machine washable!
