About Broad Band…
Cheryl’s focus while in Peru was to teach a shifting shades handpaint technique in which 50-60 yards per color is painted onto one hank of yarn. For this new technique which she calls Broad Band as opposed to self striping, she chose Supersock Silk Fingering yarn as a base. You get standard handpainted Cherry Tree Hill Colorways you know and love only each hue in the colorway stretches 50 yards rather than the one you expect in a colorway and the two to three yards you get in a Cherry Tree Hill handpainted self stripe. The hanks are 371 yards of an 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Mulberry Silk yarn, enough for scarves, lacy shawls, wraps and more. Listed below are the handpainted colorways Cheryl taught at a fair trade co-operative in Peru. These yarns will be available in 2014.
