Joie de vivre: [zhwaduh vee-vruh]
Often used to express exultation of spirit or exuberant love of life, this phrase is one of my favorites. Also known as pizzazz, vigor, joviality, and vivacity, this phrase perfectly captures the lighthearted speckles in this beautiful colorway! Amethyst, deep violet, vibrant gold, and vivacious olive green collide and dance across a bright white background for a fanciful, fun project. Shown both in the original skein straight from the dye pots as well as reskeined to balance out the speckles, you can see that this zesty colorway is busy enough to add a happy dose of color to your day but evened out with enough white to really pop the colors.
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.
