Nubby, but long and strong. Shimmery with bright and shiny viscose, but subdued by the heathery way the rayon viscose takes on the dye. Good drape and body enough for a jacket, vest or poncho, yet soft and wearable since it’s mostly wool. Perfect to throw on casually‚ but fantastic with pearls or jewels. Crochet a choker out of Zanziba and wear it instead of pearls!
That’s why we love it. And you will to!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Just a reminder‚ this yarn‚ as all Colinette‚ is individually hand-painted. There are no dye lots and every skein is unique. Elise really likes the differences and when she uses the skeins‚ she places them arbitrarily. We do have a suggestion for people who are more organized. Roll up two skeins and every two rows change skeins as if you are striping with different colors. As a result‚ the differences in the colors will blend‚ and you will not be able tell where one stops and another starts.
