An unexpected dribble of dye caused some bright orange speckles on these otherwise flawless skeins. So small you can hardly see it, it was just bright enough to notice...so you can get a great deal! I kinda love the orange with the black and gray...kinda Halloween-y!
Stop the presses! This just in: a swell skein with a smattering of speckles reminiscent of typewriter keys! Several shades of gray and black dance across a bright white skein for a copacetic look that'll take you back to the days of film noir! As austere and crisp as a black and white movie, this one's got a classic flavor like an old cigarette dangling from the mouth of a harried reporter busily pounding on his typewriter with a fedora pushed to the back of his head. You're sure to love the way it works up...and how!
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.
