CURIOUS GEORGE AND THE BUNNY from Curious George Flies a Kite from our Favorite Books collection Hand Dyed Superwash Merino Yarn,Sock Toad
During a virtual trunk show with Paige from Frame and Fiber, we discussed some of our favorite books as children. You can find the video here. This is one of the books chosen by Page.
Paige loves Curious George (as do we all!), and truly connected to her favorite monkey finding the baby bunny and finally getting him home to his mother.
She saw yarn with a white base, browns and splotches of blue, green, yellow and red. We looked at the end papers of the story book and saw her vision, only softer and in more of a pastel palette. So we started with a white base and added stripes of soft brown (for Curious George). Then, rather than splotching with primary colors, we added soft pinks, yellow, blues and mauves.
Yarn is available in fingering and DK weights:
Sock Toad Base: $28/skein
80% superwash merino, 20% Nylon
Toad DK: $28/skein
100% superwash merino
Our yarns are hand dyed or hand painted using professional acid dyes. We wash each skein carefully after dying but slight bleeding may occur during first wash. Skeins may vary in color slightly so if using more than one skein of yarn in a project, please alternate skeins every few rows.
This soft, squishy yarn is perfect for socks, shawls, sweaters or any project where you would use a Fingering weight.
Care of yarn - superwash merino will allow you to wash your items in the washing machine but please use cold water. For best results and care, hand washing is recommended.
