PEACOCK FEATHERS on Sock Perfection

Regular price $27.00

A long time ago we took the children to a small zoo in Prescott that had free-range peacocks wandering around showing off their beautiful feathers. Ever since then, I have been wanting to make a colorway that was as true to those gorgeous feathers as I could. I decided to make it an assigned pooling colorway, and, well, I hope you love it as much as I do.

The background color is a lichen green with quite a bit of tonal variation, and the dye colors I chose for the "eyes" go from the middle outward just like they do in the feathers. Take a look at the photos I used for inspiration.

I dyed it on Sock Perfection, which is perfect for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of 80% extra-soft superwash merino and 20% nylon.

SAMPLES
The second to last photo shows two samples I made using Peacock Feathers on Squoosh DK. The one on the left is a hat I knit in plain stockinette. For the square sample on the right, I used two different methods of assigned pooling. The top rows show Dawn Barker's floret stitch from the Float Shawl, and the bottom and larger portion shows simple double-elongated stitches.

The final photo shows the Metamorphosis Shawl I made using Stained Glass Sock with Peacock Feathers and Peacock Eyes.
