Give Magic to Your Princess with Abracadabra Color Changing Yarn!

Magic Princess Pattern Set
HiKoo spins fun into their new color-changing Abracadabra yarn! Abracadabra starts out as a natural color ... add sunlight (and a little magic) and the yarn slowly turns either pink or purple!

This yarn is seriously cool stuff! Both the pink and purple start off a natural/white color. The wool is blended with one-of-a-kind UV reactive polypropylene.  When it is exposed to the UV rays of the sun the yarn comes to life, changing from cream to vibrant pink or purple.  Walk inside and the color changes back to natural.

The yarn just makes you want to create! Phantom stripes, ribs, cables, or colorwork appearing and disappearing . . . unique and fun children's clothes or accessories . . . beachwear that has extra pizazz . . . ski gear that will have you dazzling on the slopes . . . let your imagination run wild!

Purse in Sunlight
It is a slightly different gauge, but HiKoo recommends pairing Abracadabra with Simplicity from KiHoo for multi-colored projects.  Having worked with the two together, it does work well.

Purse Indoors
It was impossible to limit myself to just one fun project for this yarn!  The Magic Princess Set is three separate projects: a hat, leggings and a purse to add some magic to your favorite little girl princess.  The knitting itself is quite simple, but if you're knitting indoors, all three yarns will look white - so keeping track of which yarn is which will be important! All three patterns - leggings, hat, and purse - are worked in the round with stripes of pink and purple Abracadabra intermixed with stripes of white in Simplicity.  These simple projects are genuinely adorable in their own right, but then when sunlight hits them … it's MAGIC!!

For your convenience, we have put together pattern sets with all the yarn you need to knit the hat, purse or leggings.  The sets can be purchased individually - or save with the All Three package!

Magic Princess Pattern Set
Bonus:  The pattern is FREE with the purchase of any of the yarn sets. 

Easter is just two weeks away!  Is your little princess wearing a frilly new dress for Easter?  The leggings are a perfect accessory to keep her bare legs warm at sunrise church services or chilly morning egg hunts!

Non-toxic and safe for kids and pets. The polypropylene is dyed with a photochromic dye, which is child-safe and non-toxic. It's the same dye used in color change sunglasses, printed t-shirts, etc.  Our red-sweatered kitty Scout wouldn't stand for anything that wasn't safe for kids and pets!

So who is our little princess?  The Little Shepherdess, Evelyn Craft, daughter of our employee and yarn producer Suzy the Shepherdess.   What a cutie!

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
