Eating baguettes in a cafe that’s right around the corner from your dusty garret, slipping on a beret and striped fisherman’s tee to head off to paint on the Left Bank...ahhh, the life of an American ex-pat in Paris! This skein reminds me of mixing American brashness and joie de vivre with the French elegance, style, and Gallic charm for a completely unique mashup of fun and frivolity with a touch of reserve and sophistication. Bright blue-green flits around a crisp white background awash in peach and pink speckles for a colorway that will provide a deliciously random mix of shades as you craft.

Foxy Sock is a perfect blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon spun in a 2 ply cable twist for strength and durability. Soft enough for next to the skin wear but strong enough for socks, sweaters, and hardwearing accessories, this yarn is sure to become a favorite! The twisted texture of the yarn causes cables and structured stitches to stand out beautifully and really highlights the dimensional colors of the dye.

You can machine wash Foxy on a gentle setting with cold water and lay flat to dry. For best results, I would recommend hand washing to ensure even longer lasting products. Always test washing instructions on a swatch before washing the final project!

I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, be sure to alternate rows to ensure variegation. Please note that each skein is a unique work of art and may not exactly match the photos, but will be very close. I may reskein your yarn before shipping to avoid tangles if necessary.
