The National Cherry Blossom Festival is held each March in Washington DC to celebrate cherry trees given to the city from officials in Japan. This yarn was the February, 2019 Little Known Holidays club colorway. 

This yarn has thick stripes of ivory and soft pink, and thin stripes of magenta, golden yellow, and dark brown.

Please note! The Corriedale skeins are a Pivot/Alternative Festival. They are the same as the yarn pictured except the brown and yellow stripes have been switched. We could pretend it was an intentional way of celebrating the ingenuity of all the event planners pivoting during the pandemic to create alternate and virtual events....but... it was just a mistake on dye day. The yarn is beautiful, just not what knitters preordered, so it is instead available here, ready to ship. 

Would you like your yarn cranked into a sock tube so you just have to add heels, toes and cuffs? Check out information on our cranking service! 

Yarn is available on three bases. Corriedale is a thinner, sturdy yarn. It's more toothy and comparable to a hard-wearing yarn like Regia or Opal. Both Targhee bases are plump and can be knit to a tight gauge. Targhee is soft like Merino, but also has a longer staple length which can help the yarn last longer.

Yarn is dyed and heat set with professional acid dyes. All effort is made to exhaust the dyes, but some color bleeding may occur on initial washings. Cold water is recommended.

Multiple skeins are available under this listing and, due to the nature of hand dying, colors may vary slightly from the yarn pictured.
