"Let Your Gay Flag Fly"
Whether you're a member of the LGBTQ community or simply an ally, celebrate diversity and love with this mini sparkle yarn set! Why sparkle? Because too many people in this world will try to dull your shine. Don't let them. But seriously, if you actually prefer a non-sparkle base just reach out and I can custom dye one for you on any of our bases.
This listing is for eleven individual solid colors of the rainbow with black, brown and trans inclusive colors. Each skein is 20 grams, so this gives you 220g total. This set would make a fantastic small shawl scarf, hat, set of extra high socks, mitts, cowl, and more. I can also do this on full sized skeins if you want a sweater or blanket.
This sparkle base is called Stardust and is fingering weight with a deliciously soft extra fine Superwash Merino/Nylon/Silver Sparkle (75/20/5). Each skein is 87 yards, giving you a total of 957 yards total to work with.
Every skein that you receive will look very similar to what you see in the photos (really, there isn't ever much variation with solids), but please keep in mind that we dye every order as it comes in and some variation is still possible. And as always, while we take multiple photos to show the yarn in various lights, all monitors can display color differently so please keep that in mind.
Superwash wool is special because it is treated in such a way that it will not felt the way normal wool does, so it your stitches will remain crisp. That being said, we still suggest hand washing your item when you finish making it, and laying it flat to dry, just as you would with any hand made item.
As with all hand dyed items, we recommend hand washing your yarn/finished item in cool water and laying it flat to dry. We rinse this yarn until the water runs crystal clear, but small amounts of excess dye may rarely come off with the first couple of washings. If this happens, rest assured that it is only excess dye and should not affect the coloring of your yarn in any way. If a large amount of bleeding ever occurs with any of our items, please contact us so we can make it right. We always recommend hand washing hand made items to preserve the longevity of your beautiful work.
We recommend using cool water and a neutral soap (if any), such as baby shampoo, when blocking your finished item if you are knitting or crocheting it.
