PIGEON - the hubby and I went to Charleston, SC in early 2015...we walked out onto a pier over the ocean and there were loads upon loads of pigeons. That was the first time I noticed the shimmering blue green and purple tones on their necks and have wanted to do a yarn colorway based on them ever since. This colorway is a mix of deep charcoal gray, mauve purple and smoky blue.
•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.
This was the first skein I pulled out of the first order I placed on this site, and it was AMAZING! I've never seen colors so vibrant and rich and lovely!
The colors are so rich & the yarn is velvety soft!
