In the previous post I promised I’d be introducing the new (to me) lines one at a time. This one, I am calling Tropic Sock, but I may rename it later. It is 60% Superwash Merino, 30% Bamboo, 10% Nylon, about 430 yards apiece, for $26.00 each. If I decide to keep this line, it will be $27.00 apiece.
This first batch, I decided to dye with Phydlbitz Sock, as if I were dyeing Twinsets — this would let me get a good comparison for how the yarn takes up dye, AND how it appears afterward. I dyed five such faux Twinsets. I was expecting some difference, but I was surprised at just how much!
This first picture shows each dyed twinset side by side, and I tried to adjust them so they are side- by-side just as they were in the dye pouch. I don’t see any more or less dye migration, but Tropic Sock definitely produces a more muted or softer dye job! It also feels much softer than Phydlbitz, so I imagine it would work well for shawls and scarfs!
And here I have separated the two groups and numbered them for you to claim the ones you want! Just email me your numbered selection, and make sure I know your destination state or country so I can apply the appropriate shipping and handling charges. (Rates for U.S. s&h for 1-3 skeins are shown on the Blog Reader Specials page.)
