usual (n) 1. Customary or standard.
2. Comfortable and familiar.
3. A favorite food, drink, or yarn ordered habitually.
the usual is a dense fingering yarn - smooth, with a nice twist on the many tiny plies that make up the yarn. the usual is kettle dyed using a color layering process that actually creates a play of color within the strand. some of the little plies soak up lighter layers of colors and others darker layers for a very unusual effect. the usual typically does not pool or stripe, the color effect here is unique.
it holds and shows off stitch patterns like a dream. depending on the knitter, select a needle size for socks that gives a nice, dense fabric and your socks will wear like iron.
numma numma can’t wait to hear what you think of this new treat!
please note: there are now colorways of the usual that are hand painted. those colorways may stripe or pool in the knitting.
put up of this yarn has varied. the base yarn is approximately 550yds/150g or 3.7yds/g. you can always calculate exactly the yardage you have by taking the weight of your skein (in grams) and multiplying by 3.7yds. if you want precise measurements of the yarn you have on hand, you do not have to accept the ravelry defaults - simply override the values with your calculated values when you place the yarn in your stash.
