Stars and Stripes, Forever - Tiger Twist

New for 2012 is a wider stripe version, please see "Grand Old Flag"!

They are here!  Show off your patriotism with this self-patterning sock yarn.  For 2011, the base yarn is Tiger Twist, a beautiful tight twist merino yarn spun just for socks!  Also new are the dyes....a deeper red and a truer blue make this the best edition of 'S&S, F' ever!

Batches of this yarn will suddenly appear over the course of the summer and early fall, so if there aren't any available right now, do stop by again.  Stars & Stripes is a limited edition yarn that I only make in the warm weather months.

The yarn patterns as shown.....on regular sized socks you will have approximately 2 rows red, 2 white, 2 red, 2 white, 2 red, then about 4 rows of blue with white stars.  To make this yarn requires me to first wind a 40+ foot skein, dye it, then rewind it to regular skeins.  Whew, it's a lot of work, but I sure keep in shape!
