Jojoland's Melody Superwash is made up of two plies that both have long repeats of color. The result is a fabric with very long, subtly shifting color repeats. Melody makes fabulous socks, as well as shawls and scarves. If you need inspiration, take a peek at Jojoland's popular Swirl Shawl pattern by Lijuan Jing.
Melody pairs well with Jojoland Ballad - more or less a solid version of this yarn - for colorwork and gradients.
The easy-to-manage 50 gram balls mean you can usually make 1 sock per ball (2 balls for a pair) - though of course very dense, cabled, tall, or large socks could need more.
Because of how this yarn is constructed by combining two plies with long color repeats, every ball is slightly different. The overall effect will be similar, but each ball starts and ends in a different spot in the ultra-long color shift. So, your ball will differ from the one pictured. We think this is the best part of the yarn! But if it's not right for your project, then this isn't the yarn you're looking for.
Likewise, socks knit from two different balls will be fraternal twins, not identical twins. This is part of the charm of this yarn!
Photos show several balls to try to offer a sense of the possible variation. Entering a quantity of 1 will add 1 ball to your cart for purchase.
Balls come ready to work with. They do not need to be wound.
Please buy enough for your entire project all at once. We will select skeins from the same dye lot or, if there is no dye lot, skeins that visually match. If you add multiple skeins of the same yarn to your cart you'll be prompted at checkout to select how to proceed if we have concerns about skeins matching.
While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
