Gauge: 7-8 stitches per 1" on size US size 1-3 needles
We've all heard that knitting/crocheting/quilting, etc. is for grannies. We know it's not true; and why would that stop us if it was? Named after a trendy boutique from the 1960s-1970s in London, this lovely speckled yarn proves that grannies can be cool...and maybe they know how to have fun! Whether your granny is tripping on acid, touring Europe, or just taking a trip to the grocery store, this youthful colorway with vintage charm adds pizzazz to her knitting bag. A lovely peach semi-solid background is enlivened with a burst of joyful speckles to add fun to your crafting.
Foxy Fingering 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 (no dryer please!). 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.
