About Dreamy Stripes:
Dreamy Stripes is a brushed acrylic size 5 bulky yarn. The yarn does all the color work! Watch the stripes appear as you stitch. When the yarn does the work for you, like in Dreamy Stripes, there are less ends to weave in since you aren’t dropping and picking up colors. In this shawl pattern you are only using one ball of yarn so you should only have two ends to weave in when you are finished.
Each ball has 355 yards and there are eight stripe colors to choose from. If you aren’t looking for a striping pattern you can always use the regular Dreamy yarn which comes in solid colors.
