Elphaba -- 2-ply Superwash Merino/Nylon/Silver Stellina -- Sparkle Sock
** ONE HANK MAKES ONE PAIR OF SOCKS! **
Sparkle Sock high-twist, 2-ply 75% superwash merino / 20% nylon / 5% silver stellina fingering weight yarn is the ideal choice for sock knitters everywhere! This hand dyed, eco-friendly yarn is perfect for any type of light-weight project. Particularly durable as a sock yarn, Sparkle Sock has a light sheen and a crisp stitch definition that is fabulous for lace patterns and eye-catching accessories. And it's dreamy-soft, which is exactly what you want next to your skin! The inclusion of nylon helps to reduce pilling and increase durability, making it a perfect sock yarn.
Because the non-toxic dye is fixed using a completely eco-friendly process, you don't have to fear that these amazing colors will fade or bleed under normal washing machine conditions. Colors blend into one another easily. Sparkle Sock is the definitive choice in hand-painted yarns for your most stunning knitting or crochet projects. How beautiful would this colorway be as a shawl, a lace scarf, or a pair of socks?
All of our Sparkle Sock yarn is dyed by hand in very small batches of 1, 2, or 3 hanks at a time. Each hank is hand painted at Cedar Hill Farm and each is unique in patterning, even if multiple hanks are available in the same colorway. Intensity of color may vary from skein to skein due to the natural uptake ability of the fiber.
