Moody Blues Shade E 842, lot 0995

Artesano 100% superfine alpaca 4ply is a luxuriously soft multicoloured yarn. This is the Moody Blues colourway with french navy, steel grey, airforce blue and ice blue.

Is it self striping? Well, sort off - it has a fairly short colour repeat so will knit into narrow stripes on a small items (think socks or mittens) but is likely to pool on larger items

As it's a luxury yarn (rather than a hard wearing one) the FREE pattern included with this yarn is for mittens. You will need 1 x 50g to knit an adult sized pair of mittens on 2.5mm double pointed needles.

There were 12 colourways in this yarn but I don't have many left, you can see what is available here

The yarn can also be used for a 4 ply pattern with tension/gauge of 28 stitches and 36 rows on 3.25mm needles. There are 200m (184yds) to each 50g ball of yarn.
You can knit socks with this yarn, just bear in mind it has no man made fibre so will wear fairly quickly. When used for socks the recommended tension/gauge is 30 stitches and 42 rows to 10cm/4inches on 2.5mm needles.
