special (adj) 1. Unique. Particular. Exceptional.
2. Surpassing what is common or expected.
3. The perfect lace yarn.

the special is a dense, light-fingering yarn - smooth, with a soft twist on the many (six) tiny plies that make up the yarn. It is kettle dyed using a color layering process that actually creates a play of color within the strands. Some of the plies soak up lighter layers of colors and others darker layers for a very unusual effect. The special does not pool or stripe, the color effect here is truly unique. The special blocks like a champ and shows off stitch patterns like a dream.

The unique weight and construction of the special makes it perfect for all sorts of lace projects was well as mits, light garments and socks too!

The special comes to you in a generous 125g skein that yields approximately 700 yards, and the colorways are named for our restaurant favorites. Lots of numma numma fans have helped come up with these fantastic names - thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Prior to June 2009, the Special was sold in a 1000yd (180g) skein. Then it was available in a 700yd (125g) skein. When numma numma sourced this yarn from its new mill, weght of the skeins is now an even 200g and 1100 yds.
