I named this colorway Party Like It's 2021 in the middle of 2020, assuming the pandemic would be long over by 2021. Now that time has passed, I decided to keep the theme but keep moving forward.
This is the speckliest yarn I've ever made. I used magenta, orange, yellow, chartreuse, blue, berry, and purple speckles. Did I miss anything? ;-)
I used Buttery Soft DK as the yarn base, and the speckles meld much more on this base than on my superwash yarn bases, giving it a distinctly Impressionist look.
Please note that this is NOT a superwash yarn. That means it can felt with agitation and changes in temperature, so it should be washed by hand in cool water. On the other hand, it can be fulled.
