    ALABASTER - the palest bare, cream tone (like ice cream!) - can be used alone in a project or in conjunction with other shades, for a lovely contrast.

    •Perfect for hand-knit socks, shawls, modern baby clothes and hats, accessories, mittens, stuffed animals and anything else you can think of!!  

    "RESILIENT" SUPERWASH MERINO WOOL SOCK YARN - our signature sock yarn! After years of using various sock yarns, I had the mill spin up this custom yarn for us, which embodies everything you'd want in an ideal sock yarn:

    •4-ply : Results in round, defined, beautiful stitches. The more plies the better for items that will get lots of wear like socks. Your projects will last and last with very little pilling, strand breaking or wearing thin.
    •BOUNCE FACTOR - this yarn is BOINGY! It has a ton of memory, or "resilience" (thus the name), which is ideal for socks since it stretches but bounces right back to its original length. Perfect! 
    •Fingering Weight: Perfect for hand-knit socks, but also virtually any other accessory you want to make, like hats, scarves and shawls, mittens, including baby and kid items. Wonderful for sweaters and other garments or even blankets! Sock yarn is so versatile and well-loved by many yarnies.
    •Superwash Merino Wool = super soft, super fine wool. No itchiness here! Machine-washable! Hand-washing keeps your items looking the best the longest, but no worries if your socks accidently get tossed into the washer and dryer. They'll be just fine and won't felt or ruin. Whew. 
    •Yardage: 366 m/400 yd
    •Weight: 4 oz (approx. 113 g)
    •Recommended Knitting Needle Size: US 0-2
    •Crochet Hook Size B-E  

    Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.

    1. Amazing basic to use in conjunction with a bright color  star rating

      Found a beautiful pattern that used two colors. And wanted a beautiful basic color to use with the Turquoise blue yarn I already had. It feels absolutely scrumptious so I'm excited to start my new project.

    2. Delicious!  star rating

    3. Best sock yarn ever!  star rating

      The texture of this yarn is fabulous. It is smooth to the touch, has a lovely drape, and if you like to dye your own yarn, this yarn dyes evenly and easily--whether with acid dyes or natural dyes. It is luxury yarn at a reasonable price.

    4. Simple yet stunning  star rating

      A simple cream colored yarn that works well for trim or accent colors. It matched my skein of Rose Water perfectly for an accent on my sha

      I started my socks on these and it worked fine. Now on to my next sock. Thank you.

    6. Need a yarn to break up some variegated yarn...  star rating

      Or just ran out of a color and need a trim yarn? What could be better than having the same type of yarn you are already working with!!! Have a custom order item and can't find the perfect yarn for the project or just dieing to try the Pinterest food color/Koolaid dye your own, this yarn is perfect for that!!! I admit I am a lazy crocheted who isn't a fan of switching out yarns in a project, so instead I am going to try to dye some long color change yarn...and wasn't brave enough to try the sock blank dyeing that Chandi did so beautifully... thankfully this project is for myself and my granddaughter so if it isn't perfect she'll still wear it and I can just dye mine black if it's not exactly what I am going for. I feel much more confident going in with yarn I love so hopefully it will be half as beautiful as the yarns are on here
