Willow Sock: Empathy
Empathy is a vivid orchid glazed with deeper blues and purples. As a Yarn for a Better World colorway, 20% of proceeds will be donated to Campaign Zero, a nonprofit to use data-driven policy solutions to end police violence and its disproportionate impacts on the black community.
It's dyed on Willow superwash sock 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.
