Colorway Choices

Did you know that bamboo is naturally breathable and absorbent? Socks and garments made with bamboo are more comfortable, never clammy or chilled.

***********************************************

Each tonal is available in small dyelots of up to 8 hand dyed skeins, allowing you to have matching yarn for your entire knitting project. This luscious quality yarn has received great reviews by both shawl and sock knitters.  2-3 skeins make a sumptuous snuggly shawl.  One skein makes a pair of soft warm socks.

Doubled, this yarn makes a cushy worsted weight yarn

*****************************************

Celebrate Diversity!

All our colorways are created in small dyepots containing only 3- 5 skeins each.  While we use the same dyes to color each lot of a particular colorway, we cannot guarantee a perfect match from one batch to another, nor do we number them.  Part of the beauty of hand dyed yarn is the uniqueness of each skein, similar but not equal.  Some batches are darker or lighter than others. Your yarn is one of a kind!

For  a more overall blended effect we suggest: Socks:  Wind the skein into a ball, knit the cuff of each sock first, then proceed to knit the legs, heels and feet.            Baby Sweater /Shawl or other garments:  Please purchase 2-4 skeins at one time to ensure your project is being made from yarn dyed in the same dyepot.

"I love the yarn I got today... the feel and colors are great as always another hit....I can't wait to get my daughters slippers started... not to mention a new pair of socks for me before I get the silk and want to knit it up.... great job again..." thanks Sheila

"Susan,
The yarn arrived today and it's even more beautiful than it looked on screen. Thank you for the color magic! I am bringing a few of the skeins to the Christmas party so that sister in law can choose which one she wants for her fingerless gloves.  Thanks again," Stephanie W

 

"Thanks. The colorway took my breath away; I had to have it."     Theresa

 After trying out 2 socks  on one circular needle, during which I became rather confused and my knitting muddled, I decided to try another tack on second sock syndrome. Leap Frog. Now I divide the skein into 2 balls, start one sock and continue until a change is needed.  I then go back and bring the second sock to that change point and then go on with the first, bringing the second up to it each time. Much more interesting, with the results that both get done almost at the same time.

Here is a link to instructions for casting on to knit 2 socks at once on one circular needle.

Undyed Superwash Merino/ Tencel for those of you wanting a good ecru contrasting color and those who just do not want to knit with a dyed yarn.

undyed SW/tencel

$12.50 per 4 oz  420 yd skein
