Alpaca Sock - The Windy City
The Windy City encompass all of Chicago, not just one landmark or even my favorite part of the city, but instead the city as a whole. You will find it all here, from the blue of the lake to the little greenery we have in our wonderful parks and even the Chicago River that is often quite green in color. You will also find gray and rust in these skeins to represent the steel and brick buildings and bridges. However, my favorite color in these skeins is the ivory, meant to honor the buildings that have stood the test of time such as the Chicago Water Tower and the handful of buildings still standing from the Chicago World’s Fair back in 1893.
This is an incredibly soft 4 ply yarn that is a blend of superfine alpaca, superwash merino and nylon. This yarn is wonderful for socks, but would also be perfect for shawls and hats. As you can see from the photo, this yarn has a bit of a "hairy" halo to it, which so may find itchy but I've found it to be quite soft. It tends to take dye a little less vibrantly than my merino/nylon blends.

Multiple skeins of the same dye lot are listed at the same time. Please note, they are sold individually.

It is always recommended when knitting with two or more skeins of hand-dyed yarn to alternate each skein every few rows.

Hand dyed with professional acid dyes & may bleed slightly upon first wash.
I do my best to show the true colors of the yarn but as all monitors vary yarn may look slightly different on your screen.
