ECHINACEA - I spotted some beautiful echinacea in my neighbor's yard and knew I had to design a colorway based upon it! Our July sock yarn of the month! Beautiful purple and forest green with hints of tan, sunflame gold and more. Gorg!! It didn't take me long to head to my local nursery and buy several beautiful colors of these gorgeous flowers!
•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.
I’m an avid knitter. Always have a pair of socks going. This yarn is going to be a pleasure to work with.
The yarn is beautiful but, neither skein is anything like the one featured on the site. And, it is a little disappointing that the two that I ordered are so VERY different from each other. I know that I will find a project for this still pretty yarn...just not the one that I had planned.
The colors in this yarn are stunning and will be beautiful when I'm able to knit it up into a project that I have yet to find for this particular yarn! But I know it will be beautiful!
The yarn is soft and springy. The color isn't as brilliant as shown online, but still pretty. I am purchasing all the sock colors of the month and making a cardigan when I have all of them.
so soft. going to make great socks. easy to use. fantastic colors
Beautiful yarn, have not used it yet but will update review when I do!
