Flint - Trinket sparkle

26.00

Flint was inspired by a favored type of stone that was chipped and used to make tools with! Different varieties were traded across regions and between social groups, making it a clue giving insight into the vast networks of interaction. On the Trinket sparkle base, the glimmers reflect the glassy nature of the stones, and the similarities in how both glass and flint break. Flint (also called chert in the US) was a vastly important tool, and it is still used by artists today to make historic reproductions of beautiful flaked tools.

Trinket is a 2 ply blend of 75% Superwash merino, 20% nylon, and 5% stellina. This yarn shines with an effervescent sparkle that will surely turn any garment into a statement piece. This yarn yields exceptional shawls, cowls, hats, or as an accent to open fabric sweaters.

No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, it is recommended that you alternate rows to ensure more variegation and less pooling.

 My yarns are dyed with professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last against washing and sunlight.

This listing is for one skein of ready-to-ship yarn.

Superwash treated wool can, theoretically, be thrown in the washing machine on a cool setting. To maintain a long life for your garments however, I recommend that you hand wash your wool in cold water with as little agitation as possible. Squeeze out excess water (do not wring since this will damage the fibers and distort your garment), and roll in a towel or lay flat to dry, blocking if necessary. Store yarn as well as finished objects where they are safe from the harmful appetites of moths.
