Item details

SPARKLE sock yarn is a fingering weight yarn that contains superwash merino, silk, nylon, and silver poly in a 63/20/15/2% blend. The silver poly adds a soft, non-scratchy sparkle to subtly bling your finished object. The silk adds a gorgeous sheen and lovely hand while the nylon makes the yarn elastic enough for socks.

420 yards/100 grams per skein, the listing price is for ONE skein. Two are available.

I've hand dyed these two yarns in a color shifting way with a brown, gold, and turquoise that reminds me of bell bottoms and turtlenecks from my very early youth. I use professional acid dyes that I set with citric acid and heat. Once the dye was exhausted I rinsed and soaked in cool water then hung to air dry. I wind these gradient/color-shifting yarns in a cake to display the color shifts. I usually wind at LEAST two times to ensure that the yarn isn't under too much tension. If gauge is important in your finished object, swatch, swatch, swatch. Then wash and dry and block. You know, the usual.

Since the wool is superwash, you can toss your finished object in the washer on a gentle cycle but you're going to get more longevity if you hand wash and then LAY THE FINISHED OBJECT FLAT TO DRY! You'll get a fuzzy, interlocked, and slightly smaller version of it if you put it in the dryer. Ask me how I know.

My first line of shipping is USPS First Class. I try to have every yarn and fiber sale out into the hands of the postal service within one business day of a sale. For spindles and fiber tools that are 3D printed, I try to have those orders out within 3-4 days but ask that you allow 2 weeks. In the event of a delay in filament delivery or printing issues on my end, I will notify you.
Insurance is always an option if a buyer wishes to purchase it, as is faster shipping.
