Today I'm sharing one of my souvenirs from my recent trip home. I bought yarn of course and a good portion of it was sock yarn. This sock yarn is from a company called Dream in Color. The yarn is 100% Australian Merino and is superwash. The skein is 4 oz / 450 yards and the color is called Wisterious or for the less creative #240.
The company web site says they have a unique process for coloring yarn that they call veil dyeing. they say that this yarn won't pool or "landscape" as they call it. I wasn't able to find out what makes their process so special, but I love the results they get with color.
It's funny how much sock yarn I'm accumulating in my stash. It seems as though I have given myself the go ahead to buy any skein sock yarn I want. Sock yarn is one of those yarn purchases that even if you only get one skein; there is a project you can knit. It seems to me that if you have to add to the stash, another skein of sock yarn won't hurt too much. Although I'd like to finds some one skein projects for sock yarn other than socks. I'll have to take a look around. Do you have a favorite one skein sock yarn project other than socks?
