Periwinkle is a wool yarn with an unusual texture. Two tightly twisted very fine singles are plied with a very loosely spun single. The two fine plies are visually very distinct from the loose ply, making for an interesting look. The result is not kinked, but a soft thick-and-thin effect. The twist is soft enough that Periwinkle would probably be a challenge as a warp thread, but great as a weft or knitting yarn.

Periwinkle 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.
