Katia Versailles ribbon-like yarn - Plum 88
This is a fuschia color. This super soft viscose feels like cotton. It would be a great summer shell or short sleeve top. Originally designed for summer shawls and wraps, we love the idea of knitting or crocheting a garment. Versailles has no stretch, very little body and a lot of drape. Make sure any garment you make has some ease.
Each ball of yarn weighs 50g and is 100 meters. This is a fine weight yarn and but we recommend using size 3.5 - 4mm (5 - 6 U.S) knitting needles and size 3 - 3.5mm (D3 - E4 U.S) crochet hook. 8 balls of yarn are required to make a woman's short sleeve jumper in size 12. To make a 4x4" tension square work 22 sts and 28 rows. Machine washable up to 30ºC on a short spin. Do not tumble dry.
