Grandpa’s Barn Ultrasock Improvakind
UltraSock is 437 yds (400 m) / 110 g of 80% SW Merino, 20% Nylon. It knits up at 28 sts x 36 rows over 10 cm (4") on 3.25 mm (US 3) needles.
Rusty red with a riot of speckles atop three 'pips' of the hank. Enough to add tons of interest and movement to your project.
UltraSock has fantastic stitch definition and is soft enough for next to skin wear, but also machine washable and dry-able (cool water, low heat) so it's suitable for hard wearing items like children's clothing and the hats my boys attempt to wear into oblivion. That said we still opt to hand wash and lay flat to dry all our hand knits for project longevity. Projects that need significant drape will be better suited by this color on another base yarn. Please email for assistance and check out the base yarn page.
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. If the quantity you require isn't available, email for special order accommodations. This is an Improvakind colorway, once it's gone, it's gone forever.
