About Skinny Bugga! (pronounced Buh'-ga):
80% superwash merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon
4 oz / 450 yds
8 sts/" on US #1
3-ply fingering weight
A true fingering weight version of our most popular yarn, Bugga! It's got a slightly lower cashmere content to make up for strength lost in the thinner yarn, but it's still three-ply so the twist is the same, and it's still fabulously soft. It drapes well enough for lace, makes tough socks, and shows stitches with crisp definition. The superwash merino content means it's machine washable, though of course all handknits love the gentle treatment of hand washing. Finished garments should be laid flat to dry, but a trip through the dryer won't do any real harm.
The Bugga! and Skinny Bugga! colourways are all insect themed - check each listing to see a picture of the bug inspiration!
Due to the variation in colour between skeins inherent in hand-dyed yarn, we recommend alternating skeins every two rows or every round if using more than one skein.
Note: All accompanying swatch images are done with our 'Skinny Bugga' yarn. Due to the nature of hand-painted yarn and the variability of a given colourway among bases (colour saturation, etc.), these swatches are meant to offer a representative idea of a colourway, not an exact depiction.
