Our Cast Away yarn comes in a gorgeous range of hand carded and handspun colors. In some colorways over 10 fibers colors are all tediously carded together. The finished result is a beautiful melange of colors in a super soft thick and thin textured yarn.
Cast Away is similar to our Pixie Dust yarn but smaller in yarn size, knitting up on US size 11-15 needles. Some of the colorways have sparkling Angelina fibers in them and are denoted by the work Sparkle at the end of their color name.
Even though the raw materials are the same, no two skeins are completely alike because of the intense handmade process that goes into each and every skein. To learn more about the women who spin our yarns, visit our about us page here: http://knitcollage.com/pages/meet-the-spinners
