"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.

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.

I wish I could upload a photo of the gorgeous "Light and Up" shawl I made with this yarn (pattern on Ravelry). The tones in the yarn make for movement in the finished piece, without obvious pooling or rows. I can't wait to wear this to work. If you use this same pattern though, I would suggest buying two skeins, as I ended up with just a yard and a half extra when done.
The quality of all of Expression Fiber Arts Yarn is stunning .
This colorway is absolutely beautiful!!! And as always, the yarn is so soft that it makes me want to make my entire wardrobe from it!
I bought this color to make the Adeline Crochet Shawl for my niece. It is amazing! it is working up so beautifully, I know she is going to love it!
I can't keep up with all the beautiful colors. My kids are going to have knitted and crocheted everything
I bought two skeins. It's beautiful. It kind of a "tonal" but with definite splotches of black. Very rich. After receiving this yarn I ordered 3 more skeins in order to make a very large complex shawl. I also bought two hanks of the same base yarn in "Indigo Bunting" and cast on for a pair of socks immediately. This yarn is tightly plied and will make very durable socks. I'm almost to the heel turn and am so anxious to wear these! I have a couple other color ways that I purchased in my sock queue. Very impressed with the softness, but because of the ply, they will make beautiful, durable socks. I'm hooked on Expession Fiber Arts! Looking forward to purchasing some other yarns in different weights/yarn bases. Her colors are stunning! Thank you!
