More Season’s Greetings for Sock Knitters!

Just in time for gift knitting we have received a beautiful batch of sock yarns from Indigo Dragonfly.  This Ontario, hand dying enterprise create some rich and decadent colours when they dye their yarns.  Each one comes with an equally creative name and therefore a story.  It is certainly icing on the cake to tell the recipient of your hand knit socks that they are not only made with love but the colour is called “Cumberbacchanal”. Especially if that recipient is a fan of the TV series Sherlock .


Here are some highlights from this order:

Hungry Hungry Dystopos

This yarn is composed of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon, so they will make nice and strong, washable socks! Each skein has 356m , which is ample for a pair of socks and each costs $26.

…and the award for the most inventive yarn-colour-names go to…

Indigo Dragonfly of course!
This yarn is beautiful enough! Browsing the colour names is just the added bonus.  Ponder names like “Slutty Thursday Afternoon Things” – it’s pink!

Since we have an excellent selection of unique skeins I will not be able to show you all the lovelies in this post, but here are some highlights.  ↓

Imagine matching the colour names to the feet in your life and you will have the perfect gift for some lucky someones.  This is sock weight yarn with a bit of nylon mixed into the merino for strength.  In addition it would make beautiful scarves, shawls and other light weight goods. This 356 metre skein is $26.
