Superwash Merino Sock
100% Superwash Merino
415 yds/100 g
7-9 st/ on US 0-2

Forest Glen envokes the dappled shades that result from sunlight filtering through a forest canopy - pine and mossy greens, golds, lavender, brown. The first three photos are after reskeining; the last two show the original handpainting.

This 100% merino base comes from a family-owned mill here in the U.S. and knits up into a beautifully smooth fabric. With 415 yards (100gm) per skein, it’s enough for most pairs of women's socks. Colorways dyed up in this base may tend towards a slightly greener cast than those offered in other bases.

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.
