Sock is 400 yds (365 m) / 100 g of 100% SW Merino. It knits up at 28 - 36 sts over 10 cm (4") on 3 mm (US 2) needles. This yarn can be machine washed, delicate cycle but we still opt to hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
Oyster is just washed with a barely there neutral brown. The white of the base is muted down so this will work very well in projects where pure white will flash and clash.
Sometimes you just want merino. No nylon, no stellina, no cashmere, no fluff, just tried and true SW merino in a wonderful not too light 2 ply base. Great drape for shawls, beautiful color take-up, bouncy ply for strong wear, this is an excellent all around base sock yarn. This yarn can be machine washed, delicate cycle but we opt to hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
Colors may vary slightly from the picture, due to lighting conditions, camera calibration and your computer monitor settings. The color in this yarn has been set and rinsed however even commercial dyes may bleed in the wash.
This yarn is hand dyed and ready to ship! While best practices are used to maintain consistency with all colorways, all hand-dyed yarn is unique. Identical skeins are the exception. Please double check your project requirements and order quantities to complete your project so that your skeins are best matched. This is an Improvakind colorway created with recycled unused dye and an exploratory heart. Once it's gone, it's gone forever!
