THE WINEDARK SEA Indie-Dyed Yarn on Stained Glass Sock

Regular price $28.00

Quantity Available: 3
This yarn was inspired by a really intriguing phrase from Homer's Odyssey. Apparently the ancient Greeks had no name or concept for the color blue. While pondering the idea for this colorway, a friend mentioned that on a recent trip to Greece, she noticed burgundy hues in the sea while aboard a sailboat.

I dyed this colorway on Stained Glass Sock, which is a soft and squishy 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 400 yards.

Literary Collection
Semi-Solid Colorway
400 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies
80% superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.

The Winedark Sea would look great with Renaissance Festival, Bohemian Rhapsody, or Autumn Leaves to name a few.

I included a sample of a hat I knit using The Winedark Sea. It's a different base without the black ply, but it should give you an idea of how it can work up.

My new favorite

I LOVE Carla's yarns & need to learn to knit faster, Stained glass sock is my new favorite of her bases & I love the black accent with the color, Have ordered it in several colors & all are gorgeous. It's got a lovely hand, too. I'm making myself finish a few projects so I can order a sweater quantity of wine dark sea on stained glass base. Gorgeous!!!

Thank you, Mary. I have to admit that Stained Glass Sock is sort of my own new favorite too. :-)
