Speckled yarns knit up to produce a fabric with no pooling, and are increasingly popular in contemporary knitwear. They’re not widely commercially available as they’re difficult to produce in bulk, and of course, no two skeins are the same.

No dyeing experience necessary. The kit contains fine powders that are not suitable for handling by children.
