Hand-painted Superwash wool-blend sock-weight yarn in Oregon Coast (Dark Version)
Knittique is now in its second year of producing exclusive, limited-edition hand-painted yarns, and this beautiful Superwash-wool-blend sock yarn is one of 2 variations of this colorway; sorry, the Light Version is no longer available.
This moody colorway, Oregon Coast (Dark Version), is the newest addition to my Sailing Collection. It features many subtle variations of deep ocean blues, greys, and turquoise, sparked with accents of intense bronze-browns. Gorgeous!

Skein weight: 132 g/4.7 oz.
Gauge: U.S. # 2 needle: 25 sts/36 rows = 4”
*Note: While this yarn will make wonderful socks, it can also be knitted on a range
of needle sizes for shawls, sweaters, gloves, etc.
PLEASE NOTE: All yarns will be wound into center-pull balls before shipping, so they'll arrive ready-to-use! If you'd rather your yarn was left in skein form (as shown here), you must let us know when you place your order. Thank you!
Care: Hand wash in cool water with mild detergent. Rinse in cool water, and gently squeeze out excess water. Lay on towels or drying rack to air-dry.
Note: This yarn can also be machine-washed on a gentle cycle in cool water, and machine-dried on low heat.
PROJECT IDEAS: 1 skein of Wiggly should be enough for 1 pair of adult-size socks. Please note that I can't promise that, because I don't know what pattern you might be using, but in my experience so far, somewhere between 350-400 yards of a sock-weight yarn is enough for 2 socks (not knee socks, though). This particular yarn is very soft and springy, so it would even work on significantly larger needles for something other than socks; this would create a lovely mesh effect that would look amazing in this hand-painted colorway!
P.S. This color would be perfect for knitting into a manly gift!
