Wild Strawberries is a fingering weight sock yarn which is 80/20% Superwash Merino wool/nylon. It is hand dyed on my Maine Summer Sock base. It has a soft, almost silky handle. It would be perfect for lightweight socks or larger projects like shawls. This price is for one skein of yarn.
Fingering weight, 462yds./ 100 grams the gauge on a US1 - 3 needle is 7 - 8 sts = 1"
The Name: Wild Strawberries
Have you ever had a strawberry cheesecake made with wild strawberries? When I was young, I helped my neighbor picked tiny little wild strawberries and she made the most delicious strawberry cheesecake. I can still remember how wonderful it was!
Superwash wool is machine washable - I recommend hand washing but if you like to machine wash please use the delicate cycle and lay flat to dry. I recommend washing items separately or hand washing for the first few washes as minimal color bleeding may occur.
A note about hand dyed yarn:
No two skeins are identical. If you are going to need more than two skeins for one project I will pick the skeins that are most alike and I recommend alternation skeins every two rows in your project so that the yarn will blend. :)
All yarn is from a smoke-free, cat-friendly environment, who is not allowed near the yarn.
Please remember that color differs from monitor to monitor.
