How to brighten up a dull or dark Yarn

wendy wisp

A while ago I bought a job lot of Wendy Wisp featherlight chunky yarn. Sadly this lovely yarn, which is 89% acrylic and 11% polyester is now discontinued.

This yarn has a “bobble” effect and it knits up beautifully in plain garter stitch. And although thick and chunky, it is indeed featherlight with a soft brushed texture.

I bought several different shades of the yarn, but I struggled with eyestrain when knitting the black colour. Also it looked a bit dull when knitted up, so I decided to combine the black yarn with a lightweight coloured yarn.

Try it and see! The only thing you need to be careful of is that both yarns have the same washing conditions.
