This is another new sock yarn that is waiting patiently in the stash for me to try. It is from Black Bunny Fibers and is 70% merino/30% silk and the color is apricot blush. The skein weighs 100 grams and is approximately 440 yards.
This skein points back to the sock yarn collector thing I was talking about last week's Fiber Friday post. I've been kind of fixated on obtaining sock yarn that is somehow unique or new for me. This skein meets the criteria in two ways - the yarn has silk content and is from an independent dyer I've never tried before.
I'm really looking forward to trying this yarn out. It is so soft. I haven't decided on a pattern yet. But of course it will end up as socks at some point in the future. I just can't say when. I've decided something else too. You've heard of a ghostwriter? Well, if I ever win the lottery I might just have to hire a ghostknitter to help keep up with my sock yarn stash!
