Kidsilk Skein Tracy Chapman


Our Kidsilk yarn is a super luxurious and lightweight blend of kid mohair and silk. It is amazingly soft and light to wear,. You can knit with standard gauge or over-size needles. And it also combines beautifully with other yarns, like our Merino Twist, Merino Lace and Merino DK.

Elmarie named this colour to honour Tracy Chapman and her song Fast Cars in particular.

Fast Car was the lead single on Tracy Chapman’s debut studio album, released in April 1988.  Elmarie is a car fan, and the colours made her think of the car lights in the Fast and Furious movies, and the fluorescent lights of the city at night.
If you’re looking to combine it in a colourwork project make it the star of the show, like Tracy Chapman herself, and add Indigo, Airforce, Rainforest or Sage as the supporting acts.

Since our colours are hand dyed in small batches there is variation between batches, and even within a batch.  We have a process and ingredients for each colour recipe, but can’t control how the colours “land” each time.
If you’re looking for a sweater quantity please let us know and we will dye up a batch specially for you.
