Aptly named, this yarn truly steals the show!
While searching out yarns for our shop, we came upon Leading Men Fiber Art’s intense, mesmerizing hand-dyed colorways. Each time we saw their yarns on display, we were drawn to them like an A-Lister to the Academy Awards. Show Stealer won our hearts. This fingering-weight yarn works up beautifully with nice stitch definition. It’s soft (10% cashmere), yet strong (10% nylon) and easy to care for (80% superwash merino). And did we mention the color? Gorgeous! We’re sure you’ll agree, this yarn deserves an Oscar.
With so many great colors, we know you’ll want to try more than one, but sometimes pairing colors can be hard when viewed only on a digital device. For that reason, we’ve intentionally selected colorways that work well together, and we’ve photographed them in “collections” which include some intensely variegated options along with some more tonal options. Hope this helps!
Hand-dyed yarns have subtle variations in colors that are natural and vary from skein to skein. When using hand-dyed yarn, we recommend working two rows from one skein and two rows from another to create a blended effect. Please note, the yarn you receive will not look exactly like the photos shown here. Each and every skein is different. To minimize color discrepancies, make sure you purchase enough yarn at one time to complete your project.
