Sometimes you see the perfect colorway for your project, but you need it on a different yarn base. Other times you find the perfect yarn colorway, but you need more than I have in stock.
Here you can order as many skeins as I have available on Sock Perfection, and I will dye them up just for you. Just choose the number of skeins you want, select a colorway, and click the add to cart button down below all the colorway options. You can certainly select more than one colorway, but you will need to add each colorway to your cart one at a time.
I spent a long time looking for the perfect yarn base for actual socks! It is a fingering weight that combines 80% extra-fine 19.5 micron superwash merino with 20% nylon. It's a good solid 4-ply yarn that comes in 100 gram skeins with 450 yards per skein. It can be machine washed on cold and air dried. It tends to take the dye rather brightly.
I should be very clear though that it is not just for socks. It's really a great all-around sock-weight yarn that can be used for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters to hats or anything else you can think of.
HOW DYED TO ORDER WORKS
If you see a colorway you would like me to dye for you on Sock Perfection or if you just need more than I have in stock, you are in the right place.
You can choose from all the different colorways I have available, and I will dye the yarn just for you. Please allow 2-3 weeks for me to dye the yarn for you, allow it to dry, and ship it to you.
If you order other yarn or fiber that is ready to ship at the same time, I will ship your whole order together. If you would prefer to have the ready-to-ship items sooner, please order them separately.
The photos shown are some examples of colorways I have dyed on Sock Perfection. As you can see the list of the colorway options, there are many other colorways available beyond the included photos. You can see all the other colorways available by searching for the colorway name in the search bar at the top left of my website.
Please keep in mind that every skein will look a little different even within the same batch, and while the photos are a good representation of the yarn colorway, there will be differences depending on the yarn base and many other factors.
Those variations in color are in my opinion part of the joy of hand-dyed yarn. Nonetheless, it is best to order all that you'll need for your project at the same time since the yarn dyed all at once will look most similar.
