HOLLY AND IVY - a heart-warming blend of dark pine green and deep, blackened red
•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.

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.
The color of the skeins was perfect in picking the true Christmas colors!! I have a list of patterns to knit for next Christmas! This is the perfect yarn to use for that!! Absolutely gorgeous, but then All of Chandi's yarns are just that!! In fact that's why I have placed a ban on buying yarn for a time!! I can't say NO! to her beautiful yarns, colors and textures!! I just have to knit Faster!!
I purchased two skeins of this-one for me and one for a friend. We are both sooooooo thrilled to have it. Gave it to her today and knit club and everyone loved it!
When I opened the package I let out a gasp at the beauty of the colors. Need I say more..........:-D
Oh this yarn is so nice to work with...and the color just perfect...Even with the name Holly and Ivy.. do not be thinking only Christmas....no, no, no, think Deep Woods Enchantment... or Refuge in a Winter Storm.. Did I mention how lovely this yarn feels in your fingers and it's glide across the needles...and I am using bamboo needles at that... I wish this color was in so many other weights...Aran weight even and it could be a North Woods, Hudson Bay type blanket...I mean I love this yarn...Color is just spot on on my computer monitor too!
