Brighten your projects with new Color Waves! This variegated yarn is full of complementary colors that really pop. Designed to mimic a hand dyed look, each ball of Color Waves is richly hued with a kaleidoscopic look.

At a DK-weight, it’s the ideal yarn for projects both big and small. Combine your favorite shades to create a prismatic project, or pair it with an equally weighted yarn to make it really stand out.

Meet Color Waves in the video below!:
