Hint of Spring was inspired by those first days of spring weather when little spring flowers and plants begin coming up after a long winter.
I dyed this yarn using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein has the same colors but with different placement.
I dyed it on my Dream Sock yarn base, which may be the absolute softest thing ever. Think of stroking a purring kitten or soft bunny and you'll have an idea of how soft this yarn is. It's made of baby alpaca, silk, and cashmere. Since there's no wool, it may work for someone who is sensitive to wool too. The colors tend to dye up more softly on this yarn base.
Please be aware that Dream Sock is NOT a superwash yarn so it can felt. Please wash by hand in cold water and allow it to air dry.
