Four Wheels on a Gravel Road Extrafine Merino Sock
Extrafine Merino Sock is 390 yds (360 m) / 100 g of 85% Extrafine SW Merino, 15% Nylon. It knits up at 28 sts x 36 rows over 10 cm (4") on 3.25 mm (US 3 needles).
Four Wheels on a Gravel Road is inspired by the Lucinda Williams song and just takes me to those hot summer days, heading to the lake with all the kids and the truck tied down with intertubes and camp chairs. Those white rock roads just billowing dust drifting across the fields of corn behind us. A beautiful neutral in a washed blue toned grey this is a wonderful counterpart to any project needing a blue grey neutral. 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.
Extrafine merino has a finer micron count than 95% of what is commonly available. I chose all SW Merino sock yarns without nylon until I felt this 2 ply yarn. It’s so very soft, reinforced enough for socks and mitts and sensational next to skin, I can personally recommend this yarn without reservation. This yarn can be machine washed, delicate cycle but we opt to hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
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.
