TARTAN - like many Scottish kilts, this colorway is a mix of soft red and green
•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)

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.

Sent this to my mom as a birthday present. She was very pleased and commented that it was even more beautiful in person. Very happy with how fast delivery was and Chandi is always super helpful.

When I saw this colorway, I had to have it! It does not disappoint! The colors go so well together and of course the yarn itself is a dream to work with--soft yet sturdy and amazing stitch definition.

I am so happy that I bought these lovelies! This colourway is so pretty. I keep running my hands over my skeins and squishing them. Can't wait to knit them up into something that will be all mine.

Always happy with my purchases here! But this yarn is springy and soft! And the color is so rich and the yarn really retains this even after a gentle wash!

The resilient sock yarn is truly machine washable and dryable w/no shrinkage. Nice and soft, knits up very easily.
