Knit your very own Metro Hat & Fingerless Mitts in the practical luxury of a superwash and silk blend.
Meet Sara, a hand-painted sock-weight from Sweatermaker Yarns. You will love this plump 100-gram skein of yarn, in a soft blend of superwash merino, rayon from bamboo, silk, and nylon. This yarn makes lovely accessories, and one skein is enough to make a hat and matching fingerless mitts. It would also be a great yarn for trying out a triangular shawl.

Like many special things in life, these kits come with some fine print.
Reserving Kits. We’ve hand picked some of the prettiest skeins from Sweatermaker Yarns studio. There are limited quantities of each color.
Care instructions for Sara. Hand wash, or wash inside out on delicate cycle, in cold water. Lay flat to dry on a towel. Although this yarn does contain superwash, careful washing will keep your knits looking their best.
About hand painted yarns. Each skein of Sara is hand painted and unique. If working with more than one skein, alternate between skeins for a few rows to blend the colors. Note that the colors of your actual skein may not be identical to how they appear on your computer monitor.
