Mikado is a highly textured yarn that would make a fantastic accent on a blanket or, used by itself, a dramatic knitted or woven scarf. The spin is irregular, with some areas fairly firmly spun and other areas quite lofty. The spiral slides a little on its binder, so Mikado would be a better weft yarn or knitting yarn than warp yarn.
Mikado can be dyed using Washfast dyes.
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.
