Oooh! The Colours!!

Oooh! The Colours!!

 
Hello Everyone,

 
  While TotallyInked may not be a brand new yarn at The Purple Sock, but it flew out of the store so quickly that I just had to order more. And it is easy to see why, with the depth of these colours, they are just mesmerizing.
 
  This BFL is so soft, it is lovely to spin and would make up into the most gorgeous shawl, or socks or cowl...I am particularly fond of that one right in the centre! Reminds me that summer might just be coming,lol! And how stunning would this be to use in Nuno felting or wet felting?!
 
  The yarn in 80% Merino and 20% Nylon is dyed equally as beautifully, and we now have a great selection back on the shelves for you to check out.
 
Happy Knitting,
Lynn

Hello Everyone,

This stunning Peruvian alpaca yarn is from Virginia's Juniper Moon Farm, and is simply scrumptious!!  The Herriot, in super Fine, is ultra soft, with the gorgeous loft that only aplpaca can provide, with 25% nylon added.

And the Moonshine, with alpaca, wool and silk, is just heavenly in your hands, slipping over the needles effortlessly...I just love the depth of colours in these yarns.

In addition, there are some fabulous patterns written for these yarns, I am just in love with the "Everyday" cardigan, and I cannot wait to make it!

The cowl in the pictures was a pattern from Ravelry  pattern called

Happy Knitting
