It's been hard to get our favorite chunky single yarns, so Girl Friday has developed Marlene to get us through!
This is a limited edition hand-dyed chunky weight yarn in fun colorways. All Marlene yarn is marled, meaning that it is spun with both dark and light fiber, but each colorway shows that color variation differently. It's made of mulesing-free 100% Peruvian highland wool, spun in Italy and dyed by us here in California.
Marlene is a bit thinner and a bit less soft than many other bulky singles. Think of her as a bit more hardscrabble because she's made of wool of an unspecified breed. That being said, she's still very warm, plenty soft enough for hats, cowls and scarves, plus she knits/crochets up just as fast as her cousins.

We attempt to select the best matched skeins for your order, but as this is a hand-dyed product, be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since skeins can vary widely between batches, and this yarn is a limited edition and may not be available again. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
