Fantastic thick and thin texture- a thick and thin soft singles plied with a thin singles. This yarn takes dye marvelously- you get a wonderful watercolor effect as the colors transition over the fat slubs. Wooly Bear is very soft and wonderful for any next to the skin item. Fantastic for fast knits for folks with sensitive skin.

All yarns are dyed by Ginny of FatCatKnits. Colorways are dyed according to recipes and processes developed to produce the most consistently repeatable colorways. That said, this is a HUMAN operation- please expect some degree of variation between batches, and even from skein to skein.
