LET'S TALK STRIPES!!!

 
Today's yarn review is one that makes me smile at Cherie's creativity and passion for striping goodness.  Kirby Wirby Yarns is a quickly up and coming yarn company who is know for killer stripes and amazingly soft sock yarn!  For those of you who have never dyed yarn please note, STRIPES ARE TIME CONSUMING AND DIFFICULT. 

I want to emphasize this fact because when you are holding a skein of Kirby Wirby Yarn in your hand, you would think "Yes, its amazing yarn," but it takes much more than love to get every purposely designed color combo.  As you will see in some of the following photos, the care and quality that is taken in "Clean Line Striping" is stunning!  Watching how one color starts and the other ends is flawless...
 
Now what you are all here for, amazing yarn!
 
 

Home Brewed Sparkle Self Striping Sock Yarn

Fingering / 4 ply
450 yards/100 grams
US 1 - 3 or 2.25 - 3.25mm
70% Superwash Merino Wool/25% Nylon/5% Stellina
 
Now for those of you who do not know what 'Stellina' is; just consider it the Sparkle in you Sock yarn!  Who does not love seeing little bits of inter woven sparkle in socks, it makes me smile each time I put on a pair.
 
The bounce and softness that this yarn has is fantastic, she really has done her homework on choosing a 'next to skin' so soft base.  You will be amazed at not only how it feels in the skein, but how it starts to knit up.  This is really high quality yarn, and I would recommend it to EVERYONE!
 
 
Another personal preference of mine is Good Branding.  She does such a great job with putting all her contacts and information right on her label in such a tasteful and 'eye catching' way!
 
 
 
 
 
As promised, I wanted to show you the detail in her striping patterns.  Look at the clean transition lines and the consistency in her blocks of color!  Well worth the price for quality and precision work.
 
 
 
 
I would 100% recommend this fantastic sock yarn to everyone!!!
 
Better HURRY to her Etsy Shop and get a skein before your finding everyone else snatching them up.  She does have shop updates so be watching for that 'Eye Catching Skein' that you must have.

Thank you again to Kirby Wirby Yarns for a Such an amazing line of yarn!
