If you are looking for a fingering weight yarn that's a little different then Black Elephant Slub should be right up your street. Hand-dyed in Petra's unique style Slub is a spun from superwash merino wrapped with a single ply of nylon, it's this interesting way the fibres work together that make the little slubs of merino that pick up the dye beautifully.
As a fingering weight knitting yarn, Black Elephant Slub is perfect for knitting pretty tops like Tin Can Knits Love Note or Ranunculus by Midori Hirose. Slub is also great combined with Black Elephant Merino Singles for a shawl.
As with all hand-dyed yarn, each skein is unique. If you are planning a large knitting project, it is best to alternate skeins to ensure an even appearance of the colour.
