This is an Orphan Skein web page (because we do not have many of these left in stock and because we are offering them at a great discount).
But it is also kind of a Kit page (because there is a wonderful design that uses this yarn that we want to share with you).
The yarn is from Katia and is called Air Lux. It is composed of 70% viscose + 30% extrafine merino and has 328 yards/ 50g ball. Despite that great yardage per weight, it knits up as a fingering weight.
It also has an amazing sheen to it. And this colorway, named quite appropriately Silver, almost looks like you could use it as a mirror (not really but it really shines!).
Ute Nawratil recently started offering some lovely patterns all built around tuck stitches. TV Tuck is a wonderful introduction to that kind of knitting and is so simple that it could be knit as you watch TV.
She writes that it is "made of a simple pattern that is repeated continuously, That makes it a great side project, as soon as you have grasped the rhythm (hence the name TV Tuck)."
Her original piece used virtually the same yarn (though a different colorway and a different label), three skeins worth, for a wonderful stole. The length and the width are quite easy to adjust.
