Beautiful color gradients on a wonderfully soft yarn. For Butterfly we have selected a coordinating palette of muted colors in a hand dyed look. The colors flow into each other in a single long gradient, so the sections are about the same length as you work your way through the skein.
Butterfly is spun from a premium anti-pilling acrylic that is soft, smooth and easy to work with. You will notice it doesn’t pill to the same degree as some acrylic tends to do.
Create lovely crocheted or knitted blouses, blankets, scarves and so on. The yarn has enough weight to give the finished object beautiful drape.
The yarn is spun from a so-called anti-pilling acrylic. This type of fiber is constructed in a special way that makes the fibers less likely to pill, like acrylic usually does. Anti-pilling is neither a treatment or process added to the yarn; the difference is in the construction of the special fiber material that the yarn is spun from.
