What is a Dye Sink Skein:

In an effort to better the environment I am always looking for small ways to conserve water, reduce waste, and minimize my footprint. During the dye process, there is a lot of dye that gets left on the tools or in my measuring cups. I save this dye, combine colors together and create a beautiful unique colorway. 

Please note, as these colorways are not measured or recorded I am unable to recreate this exact colorway again. Your skein is special and unique. 

What is the difference between One of a Kind and Dye Sink Leftovers:

One of a Kind: a trial colorway that is intentionally created, but not brought into the regular lineup. 
Dye Sink Leftovers: a unique skein and colorway that is created with leftover dyes and is not reproducible. 

Soft Sock - Fingering

  • Fingering weight

  • 85% Superwash Merino, 15% Nylon

  • 360 m - 100 g [394 yards - 3.5 ounces]

A strong 2 ply base with a lot of definition. 2 ply base works fantastic in socks and the added nylon gives a super strong yarn, perfect for any project.

After dyeing, the yarn is thoroughly rinsed and soaked the yarn in a lanolin-based wool wash. Slight bleeding may still occur.

Recommended Care: No two skeins are identical. If you need more than one skein for your project, alternate rows to ensure a good colour match. It is recommended to soak your finished object in cool water with a wool wash of your choosing and block/lay flat to dry to improve longevity.
