Willow Sock: Slate
Slate is a beautiful semi-solid of midtone greys, with a slightly blue cast. Less stark than black (and it's so much easier to see your stitches!), it's a wonderful neutral that goes with a huge array of other colors. Slate is handpainted 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, but still durable 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.
