A Trio of Sorbets: Our contribution to the Phat Fiber May 2012 box, Ice Cream Social. Five kettle dyed skeins in our favorite sorbet flavors, Lemon, Raspberry, and Peach. Luscious, light and fruity! The last photo is of a little knitted sample.
This sock yarn is 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon for strength. It is decadently soft and smooshy, and takes color beautifully. At 435 yards (100 g.) per skein, it should be enough for a pair of most socks.
Although the merino in this yarn is superwash, hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry for best results and to extend the life of your finished creation. This yarn has been rinsed a minimum of three times after dyeing, but may still bleed slightly on its first washing.
Currently, yarn is dyed one at a time or in small batches, but if you would like to order multiple skeins for a larger project, I will be happy to dye to order with every attempt made to match skeins as closely as possible. Also, although every attempt has been made to represent colors in photographs, individual monitors may vary.
This yarn was dyed in smoke-free premises. There are two cats and a dog, but they are not allowed to play in the fiber, which is stored in plastic bags and covered bins.
Please note if you want your yarn wound into a center pull cake, at no extra charge.
