This gorgeous fingering weight yarn is dyed in sunny California by the talented Mira Cole. The colors are luscious and bright with strict specifications for every color batch. This top quality superwash merino wool is the perfect compliment to Malabrigo Sock yarn. Feel free to combine these brands in a single project! Contact us if you would like us to verify a color combination before you buy.
La Jolla (pronounced "la hoi-ya") is available in 4 distinct color series:
Tonal Solids: solid with very slight color variation; a few colors are true variegated yarns meaning that they knit up with visual gradations within the knitted project
Speck-tacular: Speckled yarns with a white base
Dipped & Dappled: Speckled yarns that are dipped in solid colorways for roughly half of the skein. Color repeat is approximately every 30"
Color of the Month: Limited edition colors that are made to compliment each other. If you would like to receive each color each month, please email us. We will invoice you for payment each month (we do not auto-bill at this time).
