You asked for it, here it is! This yarn was so popular last year that I am taking pre-orders so I can be sure to order enough yarn (but I will cap it off....there are only so many striping yarns a girl can make and still enjoy summer!)
Since my usual sock yarn is a bit on the thick side for sock yarn, I will be dyeing my summer yarns on a new base for me...a Superwash Merino/Bamboo/Nylon blend (60/30/10), 3ply. The skeins will have plenty of yardage for socks....430y, 115g (4oz).
Bamboo has natural antibacterial properties, has a marvelous luster, and is light and cool. The merino adds memory and wicking properties, and the nylon lends its strength to the blend.
The yarn creates a thin two row stripe on regular socks in stockinette...YMMV with various patterns. Note: The pictures are from last year's yarn, this year's colors may be somewhat different, but will definitely be a colorful rainbow!
This yarn is also included in my Summer Sock Club, but signups are limited, so here's your chance to get Rainbow Brite Stripe for yourself!
Pre-Orders will be taken until May 4th (or until they are sold out, whichever is soonest). I will order the yarn on May 5th, and start dyeing the moment it arrives. I'll keep an update running in my blog as far as progress, and of course I will get the yarn to you as quickly as possible. I will make more this summer, but the price will go up.....the bamboo blend yarn just plain costs more!
