Sol Dégradé: This is what T shirts in heaven must feel like!
Made by Lang Yarns, it is a remarkably soft, machine-washable, combed cotton ribbon yarn.
Though an Aran weight, it’s perfect for summer breathability, making it a great choice for folks looking to make a warm-weather garment but who really prefer working with larger needles or hooks.
Sensitive skin? This soft yarn is cool to the touch, with no irritation.
Here’s what’s really remarkable about it: Based on what size needle or hook you use, this versatile yarn can go from an opaque, close-knit fabric to a breezily open and draping web. Knit with the same yarn on different needles and you won’t even recognize it!
For example, here's Sol Dégradé knit up on US size 9 needles:
