Getting to Know Shawl In A Ball Yarn

shawl in a ball

Shawl in a Ball comes in 5.3 ounce (150 gram) bullet skeins with 481 yards of beautifully gradated colors. With 16 shades to choose from you might find that selecting just one is no easy task. Eight colors are metallic and include a thin strand of reflective (non-metal) material.

This yarn plays nicely with simple stitches and shapes that allow the beauty of the yarn's color and texture to shine. Watching the flow from color to color will keep basic stitches from becoming boring.


The Lana Kimono, shown above, uses 2 skeins of Shawl in a Ball yarn in the "Moonstone" colorway. This design from Sewrella shows off what you can do with a simple geometric shape, an allover mesh, and a small amount of seaming.
