Local dyer Naima Bond, aka Sister Ananse, applies what she has learned as an art student to dyeing yarn. The results are phenomenal!

Let Your Imagination Run Wild!
"Zebra" yarn gets its name because it starts out with black and white yarns stranded together giving it the zebra look. The black stays black even after the dye is added. When it is worked up, it is actually a bit more subtle than it appears in the skein. 

Used by itself, it is best in a pattern that is primarily stockinette, garter, or eyelets - simple patterns that highlight the beauty of the colors of the yarn. Avoid cables and intricate lace that will be obscured by the colors.  

Zebra yarn is also beautiful when striped with a semi-solid or saved for the edge of a shawl.

Fingering weight
100% Superwash Merino
437 yards = 100g

Note: Naima puts a lot of different colors in most skeins, so yours may look slightly different than the skein pictured.

Shake it up: three colors
Barley Light: one skein hat
Rebel Rebel: lightweight cardigan

Zebra fingering

I loved using this yarn. It feels so soft and weightless!!! I'm so excited about my two colors - I've planned a shawl for an ailing friend!!!
