WILLIAM, BURT & TOM from The Hobbit 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.
I spent quite a bit of my life imagining myself living in Middle Earth so when Paige picked The Hobbit as one of her favorites, I nearly cheered.
She felt the yarn should have dark greys and golds and greens and should be named for the Trolls that the group run into. Out of all ten yarns we dyed, I think this may be my favorite.
Yarn is available in fingering and DK weights:
Sock Toad Base:
80% superwash merino, 20% Nylon
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.
