75/25 is a sturdy sock yarn and versatile enough for other fingering weight projects. With tones of length, the yarn is ideal for a longer sock or shawlette pattern.
Every skein of yarn has a story and at RavensWood Fibre Co, I get to be a part of that story.
Yarn and the process of working it by hand is a sensual experience. We are drawn first by colour, we are held by touch, we hold to dream of the who, the what, the where and sometimes why we need the yarn. A skein of hand dyed yarn is more than a string for a project. The colours and patterns draw us in. Every stitch anticipates the next colour change and how that will play against the fabric we create. We can find the rhythm of the needles/hooks meditative. When we work with hand dyed yarns we know that although you may see similarity in another skein, this skein is special. It is unique in the depth and breadth of pattern. It was built with kind hands that loved it from its birth to your hand.
What’s in a name? It’s the final gift. A part of my soul that I share with you. A reflection, a story, and often a giggle as I send this piece of me out to the world for you to continue its story.
I make every effort to ensure that the colours are photographed as accurately as possible using natural light, but every computer screen can be a little different. To keep your yarns bight and happy, I suggest that you hand wash your finished garments with cold water, rinse well and lay flat to dry on a clean towel.
The colours are wonderful....a perfect larger size shawl.
