When I Grow Old Sock Light
Sock Light is 463 yds (425 m) / 100 g of 75% SW Merino, 25% Nylon. It knits up at 28 - 32 sts x 36 - 40 rows on 2 -3 mm (US 0 - 2 1/2) needles.
When I Grow Old is inspried by the Jenny Joseph poem, "Warning." Bold big red interrupted by a vibrant microsection of deepest purples with occasional pops of bright blue. This dye technique is perfect for deliberate stacking projects, microstripes or just bold sections of purple for the most daring amoung us.
Sock Light is about as perfect a light sock yarn as has ever been seen. The yardage is wonderful, the additional nylon reinforces the merino for hard wearing projects. It happily takes dye, is next to skin soft with a drape that is appropriate for shawls and such. This yarn can be machine washed, delicate cycle but we still 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. If the quantity you require isn't available, email for special order accommodations.
