The Bookworm was taken directly from the polar fleece jacket of a little guy at the library. The moment I saw the jacket I knew those colours needed to be on sock yarn.The stripes are about 4 rows wide on 2.5mm/US1 with 60 stitches in white, blue, turquoise and bright green. This colourway comes with a mini for cuffs, heels and toes. This yarn is hand dyed with professional dyes on a 80/20 superwash merino/nylon blend. Merino is next to skin soft and is perfect for socks but can be used for shawlettes, scarves, baby clothes etc....
Fibre Contents: 80% Superwash Merino 20% nylon Weight: Sock/#1/4ply Yards: ~420 Grams: ~ 100 grams Gauge: 7 sts=1"/2.5 cm on US 1 or 2.5mm needles
While there may be more than one skein pictured, the price listed is for one skein. More than one skein may be available. To check how many are available, check under "Add to Cart" button in the top right corner.
Care for superwash hand dyed yarn: Machine wash on delicate and lay flat to dry. Hand washing is always recommended. A detergent specifically for wool is recommended. Minimal bleeding may occur in the first couple of washes, so wash separately.
Please Note: I try to show the colours of the yarn as accurately as possible. Colours could vary depending on your monitor.
