Candy Cane Lane is a true self-striping yarn. Each stripe is 3-4 stripes per color. The colors are red and white.
The yarn base is called Lovely. It is a 4-ply, 75% superwash merino/25% nylon, 100 gram, 460 yard, fingering weight yarn.
Reds, especially Christmas red, are notorious for presenting special washing challenges. The dyes have been set and every skein has been washed twice to ensure extra dye has been washed out. It is possible, however, to knock a dye molecule or two loose with the friction of your knitting. You may see a bit of red in the rinse water.
As with all hand dyed yarns, I recommend hand washing in cold with unscented soap or wool wash for best results.
Traditional Stripes are a collection of new colorways that I am testing out this year. These may become part of the regular line up at a later time, but for now they are limited editions.
