American Dream Sock: Fair Winds
Introducing American Dream Sock! This is a new base yarn for Huckleberry Knits, a blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon that is 100% grown, processed, superwash-treated, and spun in the U.S. This is a beautifully springy yarn, with four tight plies that create a round yarn with superb stitch definition. I'm thrilled to be supporting our domestic textile industry and reducing my carbon footprint by offering this yarn.
This skein of American Dream Sock is 3.7 oz and approximately 400 yards. U.S. 0-2, machine or hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry.
Fair Winds is a swirl of deep navy blues (a bit darker than shown in the photos), purple, rich sea greens, lavenders, and sky blues. It's dyed with my watercolor technique, a hybrid of handpainting and low-water immersion. This produces paler, more random color transitions while retaining the depth of color produced by handpainting.
