The Painted Ladies are a collection of colorful Victorian Houses from around the Bay Area, here our sock yarn is hand dyed in small batches with varying color combinations reminiscent of some of our local ladies. Our sock yarn is a 4-ply superwash merino base, that is super soft but with the perfect amount of nylon to help keep your garment's shape. Perfect for socks, or tight little sweaters, or lovely shawls. Please note that no two skeins are alike, but within the same dye lot, they will be similar enough for larger garments. As with any of our yarns custom orders are always accepted.
