The yarn colors in this collection include Amethyst, Black, Cobalt, Copper, Gold, Light Gray, Periwinkle, Ruby, Sky Blue, and Thyme.
This yarn comes in two sizes: Bold and Fine. Lyte Bold yarn has approximately 2,600 yards per pound Sett at 20-28 epi and beat at 20-28 ppi. The Lyte Bold combines beautifully with 10/2 or 8/2 cotton yarns. Lyte Fine yarn has 5,000 yards per pound. We recommend setting the Lyte Fine at 30-36 epi and the same for ppi. The Lyte Fine yarn combines beautifully with 16/2 or 20/2 cotton yarns. Both the Lyte Bold and Lyte Fine are strong enough to use for warp.
To minimize the exuberant tendencies of these yarns as you are weaving: soak your bobbins and pirns in water prior to use. It doesn’t need to be a long soak (10 minutes or so is plenty…the bobbins will sink below the surface of the water as they get fully wet). Then blot dry and weave your fabric. This prevents the yarn from escaping from the bobbins.
Colors are dyed with Fiber Reactive dyes and are relatively washfast.
