Bee Stung Lips-Nymphette Sock Fingering-Ready to Ship
Yardage: approx. 437 y./399 m.
Gauge: 7-8 stitches per 1" on US size 1-3 needles
No self respecting flapper would go to the speakeasy without her bee stung lips! This skein mixes the deep, seductive colors that flappers found most attractive for their lipsticks: bold crimson, hot spicy red, dark fuschia, and hot magenta with a soft black glaze. This incredibly bright, rich color evokes the sexy modern woman of the 1920s in a smoky jazz club.
Strong and supple but soft and luxurious, Nymphette blends 70% superwash merino with 20% yak and 10% nylon for a hardwearing sock yarn. Exquisitely soft, this beautiful 3 ply yarn comes undyed as a heathery gray base that takes color with extra depth and richness, subtly changing the recipe for a unique and special look. For best results, hand wash in cold water with a mild detergent and lay flat to dry.
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.
