Willow Sock: Blue at the Mizzen
Blue at the Mizzen is a deep, dark navy blue, beautifully rich and a bit darker than shown in the photos. It's named after the final book in the Aubrey-Maturin series by Patrick O'Brian, one of my very favorite series.
Blue at the Mizzen dyed on Willow superwash fingering yarn, a blend of 80% Blue-Faced Leicester and 20% nylon.This yarn is soft and fluffy, with that lovely BFL luster and resistance to pilling, and extra durability thanks to the nylon content. It's perfect for shawls, scarves, cowls, sweaters, and gloves, as well as socks.
Each skein is 4 oz and 420 yards. Suggested needle size: U.S. 0-2. While this yarn can be machine washed and dried, hand washing in cold water is recommended to extend the life of your handmade items.
