Peace Fleece burnt orange wool yarn for knitting - Glasnost Gold worsted weight
You can't get enough of Autumn and the trending burnt orange color? Glasnost Gold is THE quintessential autumn color. Tawny and russet, introducing warmth into the marvelous deep orange with lighter flecks of pumpkin, red and teal occasionally peeping through, GORGEOUS!
All skeins the same dye lot.
Peace Fleece wool yarn is very snuggly and can be substituted in any pattern calling for worsted weight yarn. You can use it in several projects, but I think it shines in sweaters, coats (or jackets) and mittens. I have even used it in slipper socks, and they have worn very well for several seasons! You see, the softer the yarn, the more it pills. The more it pills, the more it is breaking up, something you want to avoid. Peace Fleece Glasnost Gold will make your completed project a beautiful burnt orange color that is a classic and is not one bit humdrum. Little dots and dashes of color flit about on your finished project, making it uniquely yours!
As I mentioned, you can use this yarn in just about every pattern that would use worsted weight yarn, but what you might not know is that you can do needle felting with this yarn! Since it is 100% pure wool, you can also felt your finished project.
Care for this wool yarn would include hand washing in the sink with some shampoo or some wool wash (like SOAK) and a quick rinse. Roll up in a towel and then lay to dry. I have accidentally machine washed my knitted items that I made with Peace Fleece, and the result was not disastrous. I laid the piece out to dry afterward. I found the garment "tightened up" but didn't necessarily shrink.
