If you're familiar with our yarn 42-006, this yarn is similar, but slightly finer. It's a fine, even single, a beautiful quality, with a slight firmness that is quite unique. Use it for weft in weaving for thick, dimensional work, either all-over, or as single accent shots. For knitting, a densely knit piece will be firm and lustrous; a more loosely knit piece will be drapier. It's a fabulous knitting yarn. Stitchers, consider couching this yarn for dramatic punches of lustre.
