Serpentina

Hand dyed and handspun yarn
100% merino superwash
approx: 130 meters
3,5 oz / 100 grs skein
gauge: 16 stitches by 4"/10cms
needle: US8 / 5mm

Serpentina is a very special yarn, each skein is a work of art on its own. 

At our cooperatives in Uruguay countryside, the artisans first dye the colors to the merino top and then hand spun it in the spinning wheel. 
This creates a delicate color twirling effect that reminds us of the paper streamers (serpentinas)  thrown at the Carnival parties.
