Rainbow Heirloom Solo Light

Rivulet Shawl in RH Solo Light

Jess of Ginger Twist Studio in her Rivulet Shawl in RH Solo Light in ‘jewel sea’.  This simple and satisfying project takes 2 skeins of Solo Light.

Rainbow Heirloom Solo Light is one of my very favourite to dye, and is absolutely beautiful to knit with. The single-ply sock-weight merino soaks up colour like a sponge, creating vivid and luminous colourways.  For more even more photos, surf Instagram for #RHsololight.

Solo Light is beautiful in stockinette, it would be perfect for a lightweight drapey cardigan.  It also makes exquisitely delicate garter stitch stripes.

This single-ply yarn has a crisp clarity that is ideal for knitting lace!  You can really see the smooth perfection of each stitch.
