Twizzle Foot is a knockout, thanks to the way that is it dyed. A silk/wool ply and two wool/nylon plies are twisted together and then dyed. The silk takes the dye differently, so the yarn looks like a barber pole. Once you have knitted it, the fabric has a tweedy look, with lots of variation but also richness and depth. Try it for socks, mittens, or an elegant lace shawl.
This yarn comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process.
