A strong, yet incredibly soft 2 ply yarn with some nylon for strength. The stitch definition with this yarn is incredible. On size 1-1.75 needle this make cozy socks, with larger needles you can make a shawl, mitts, do colorwork, scarves, fingering weight sweaters, anything that calls for fingering weight is a good fit for this yarn. It has a nice hand, and the 2 plies plump nicely when washed. This is our go-to sock yarn around here and will be for years to come.
-About the Colorway
We use professional acid dyes in our in-home dye studio. The bright colors will last, I suggest washing by hand and drying flat. Most colorways do not stripe, or pool, however some do and we will always note that, when it does.
Note: I understand the desire to see a knit sample and I am knitting as fast as I can, I promise (when I'm not dyeing, re-skeining, or dealing with kids, cats and a dog). If you knit, or crochet and would like a 20% discount on your next order, please send me a photo of your finished object. I can only accept photos that are clear, and only use Liedel Fiber Art Yarn. While no one is as exacting as my mom was when she knit, we would like a photo that shows good work, not perfect, good is good enough! Just convo me for more details.
One of the wonderful things about artisanal dyeing is like the proverbial snowflake, no two are exactly alike. If you wish to order more than one skein, please alternate skeins to assure a picture perfect finished project.
The base yarn, Lake Michigan Sock, is soft superwash merino, 80%, with 20% nylon for strength in Two plies.
-Two Ply Fingering Weight Yarn

- Approximately 400 yards, in a 100 gram skein
- More than enough yardage for a pair of socks, or small shawl.

- Cat friendly home, non-smoking environment. If you have a serious cat allergy, please let us know. We will do everything possible to make sure you do not get yarn with as little as possible contact with cat dander. We work hard to make sure the cats never come in contact with the yarn, but we make extra sure for people with allergies.We also have a Goldendoodle, but he is not an allergy risk for most people. He is also NEVER allowed around the yarn. Not since he pulled a Brioche shawl that was all but complete off the needles.

I ship internationally, the least expensive way. We ask that any purchase over fifty dollars be insured. Believe me, this makes life easier and offers a headache free existence for everyone. Packages are shipped three times a week. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
We accept PayPal and Etsy Payments. If you are using an E-check, it must clear, prior to shipment. Michigan buyers will be taxed. We'd love to skip this part, but Lansing likes to check that we're compliant with tax codes and honestly, we want to participate in the growth of our state.

Our aim is to deliver delight. All colorways are photographed to the best possible match. Monitors can change things and different dye lots will affect the color. As with all hand-dyed products some variations may occur. Please let us know if this lot is not what you are expecting. We will try our best to match your expectations. We do look at the photos on two monitors and in different browsers so every photo is as honest as possible.
