When you knit with Novella, it's like reading an engaging tale full of colorful twists. You will find this self-striping yarn hard to put down, wondering what comes next in its sequence of colors... Sometimes something surprising and always something beautiful!

  • A "self-striping" yarn is dyed in a pattern of colors, so that when you knit it, the colors form repeating stripes, thick ones if your knitting is narrow and skinny ones if it's wide. 

  • Novella has an additional twist. Not just a series of colors, Novella has two colors spun together throughout its overall multi-color repeat, so every passage is softly marled for beautiful depth and fascination. 

  • Aside from all its colorful tricks, Novella is a wonderful yarn to hold in your hands and knit. Made in Italy, it is 92% extra fine merino, the softest grade of merino there is, plus 8% mulberry silk. The merino lends body and bounce to the yarn (and fun to your knitting experience!), while the silk adds luster to its surface and also beauty to its drape.

  • A nice sportweight, Novella knits up a 6.25-6.75 stitches per inch and is great for accessories, garments, and blankets. Plus, it comes in a ball, all ready to cast on!

Novella is a seriously beautiful yarn, but also a ton of fun and full of possibilities: Combine more than one color, stripe it with a solid color, change directions... Play!

NOTE: Click the thumbnail photos to the left to see how an entire ball of Novella knits up, but remember that the size of your stripes will depend on the width of your knitting!
