Bright spring colors of yellow, red, and greens on soft superwash merino/nylon wool are hand painted to create "Barrel Cactus Stripe". This richly colored yarn is hand painted by me with professional acid dyes which use white vinegar for the chemical reaction. Some of my bases are as described below.
Sock Addiction: This is my most popular yarn base with 75% Superwash Supersoft Merino and 25% Nylon mill-spun into a squishy 2-Ply fingering yarn. Knitting gauge will be 7-9 stitches per inch on 0-2 size needles. Each skein is 460 yards and 100g.
Fixation DK: A very squishy 100% SW Merino yarn in DK weight. It's a mill-spun 4 ply yarn that takes color wonderfully well. 231 yards and 100g per skein.
Glitter Sock Addiction: This yarn is mill-spun and is a 75/20/5 Superwash Merino/Nylon/Gold Stellina blend in a super soft 2-Ply fingering yarn. Knitting gauge will be 7-9 stitches per inch on 0-2 size needles. This skein is 438 yards/100gr skein and has that touch of sparkle that I love so much.
Seduction Sock: A beautiful 2-Ply mill spun fingering yarn made of 80% Superwash Merino and 20% mulberry silk. Knitting gauge will be 7-9 stitches per inch on 0-2 size needles. This lovely yarn has wonderful stitch definition and makes colors appear more intense and bright.
Craving Sock: A luxury super squishy soft 2-ply fingering yarn made from 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere for warmth and softness, and 10% Nylon for strength and better wear. Knitting gauge will be 7-9 stitches per inch on 0-2 size needles. 100g skeins have 435 yards per skein.
Mohair Madness Sock: A soft, sleek fingering weight yarn composed of 20% Kid Mohair, 55% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon blend. 438 yards per 100 g skein. Knitting gauge will be 7-9 stitches per inch on 0-2 size needles. Care is hand wash cool and lay flat to dry. This yarn will bloom with use and eventually have a soft fuzzy nap over the softness of the Merino with a bit of Nylon for more strength. Kid Mohair takes the color really well and the colors glow.
I have re-skeined this yarn to make sure there are no tangles or knots to frustrate you. I will be happy to wind this into a ball for you if you prefer, just choose your put-up. There are other yarn bases I can make up in this colorway if you like. Convo me if you'd like something you can't find.
