POISON APPLE - magical, crimson red - a deep, gorrrgggeous red accompanied by a handsome gray tone - a very difficult red to capture with the camera but it's amazzzing in person.
•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 haven't used this yarn yet but plan to soon. Love the color...picture doesn't do it justice. I have no doubt it will be just like any of Chandi's other yarns ~~~ excellent. I love working with Chandi's yarn and the end result is always amazing. Wonderful customer service also.
I have a not-so-small collection now of different Resilient yarns because I love them so much! So soft, so quishy, and I LOVE the bounce!! I missed the Poison Apple colorway the first couple times, but third time was the charm. SO glad to have this one to add to my hoard. :)
I love Poison Apple and waited until the third dying to purchase because folks kept scarfing it up. :) The reds are on the true red side tending a bit "blue", rather than "tomato"-y. For me, this is perfect. The only downfall is that the 2nd color, marked as grey, showed up in my skeins as clearly Mauve-y. A little more purple than I was expecting. The plan is to use the Red Poison skeins with other reds that Chandi has put out: Strawberry and Velvet Rose Red alternating shades for maximum blendidng. I know my project will be stunning.
I love EFA 'Resilient' yarn. It is so soft and squishy! It makes up beautifully and gives your projects that luxury feel. I can't get enough!
