This colorway is part of the July 2020 Clan of Igors installment.
It is based on the movie 'Pet Semetary'.
Inspiration comes in the form of unearthing colors in our stash of pigments. There are a few pots of dye pigments that just don't get used as often in the studio. Sometimes because they have been tested by us and deemed unworthy and sometimes just because they are waaaaaayyyyy out of my comfort zone. Like most of the nature inspired and neutral colors.
For this colorway, I limited myself to using pigments that I have never used before, beyond swatching. Which means we ended up with the skein you see before you now. Half of the skein is dunked in a semi-solid sky blue and reminds me of sunny days. The other half of the skein is a variegated accumulation of greens that have a more earthy feel, like a graveyard.
And I will admit that once I was done, the first thing that came to mind for me was the Windows XP background screen. Which is also better off dead...
Check your skein for a little catscare marker!
Strain Sock is a high twist 2-fold plied yarn with 80% merino and 20% nylon. It's soft enough for next to skin garments and sturdy enough to last as socks. We love the look of this yarn, since it reminds us of helixes and the stitch patterns come out crisp and beautiful.
Fiber contents: 80% fine superwash merino | 20% Nylon
This listing is for 1 skein of yarn. Photo of multiple skeins shows a comparison between yarn bases and/or skeins.
