Opal sock yarns from Germany are popular amongst sock knitters and can be used for socks, gloves, hats and larger items.
In Opal's Black Dragon collection, one thread of single yarn is dyed black in advance and then twisted with three other white single threads. However, this is not a classic mouliné, but a so-called flamed mouliné. This means that the mouliné effect first increases, remains present and then decreases again (see photo).This creates an additional exciting and varied contrast to the classic Mouliné, which always remains present.Afterwards the finished yarn is dyed again completely in different shades and a new, chequered pattern in many different effects and depths is created. Six different shades are available.
