Despite the textured appearance of Faery Wings in the hank, the yarn knits up into a smooth and even fabric with luxurious drape and a soft halo, as shown in the swatch pictured. Swatch knitted in Faery Wings #12 Sherbet on 3.5mm needles.
This blend of fibres means the yarn takes the semi solid and variegated hand dyed shades with a unique depth and intensity.
