Batik Swirl

The colours in Batik Swirl have block tonal transitions to create exciting colour changes and the subtle dappled effect of the yarn gives a lovely sense of texture. Knits up like you are using lots of different coloured yarns, while in fact all you need to do is keep knitting and the yarn will do all the work. Like all the other yarns in the Batik range, it's a wool, and premium acrylic blend, so it is silky soft to the touch too.
