Potion Yarns--Unwind at the Lake
This custom color, created for us by Johanna Miller of Potion Yarns, just screams "Summer Fun!" Unwind at the Lake is a vivid combination of blues and corals with pops of warm pink and just the right amount of speckle--grab a boat drink and create a fabulous pair of shortie socks in the Foxy Sock base, or the perfect summer tank in Temptress DK!
Johanna Miller is a former hairstylist whose training helps her dye high quality yarns with rich dimensional colors that shift and glisten from every angle. Her trademark vibrant multi-hued skeins are lovingly hand-dyed with professional high-quality acid dyes and non-toxic GMO-free citric acid, resulting in brilliant and fade-resistant colors.
Foxy Sock is a perfect blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon spun in a 2 ply cable twist for strength and durability--soft enough for next to the skin wear but strong enough for socks, sweaters, and hardwearing accessories. The twisted texture of the yarn causes cables and structured stitches to stand out beautifully and really highlights the dimensional colors of the dye. You can machine wash Foxy on a gentle setting with cold water and lay flat to dry (no dryer please!). Approx. 400 yd./366 m. Gauge: 7-8 stitches per 1" on US size 1-3 needles.
Like a sultry siren, Temptress DK will entice you into your next project with luxurious, squishable 100% superwash merino! A strong 4 ply yarn with a smooth texture, Temptress absolutely glows with color. The bouncy, resilient fiber is perfect for all kinds of projects--try it for your next sweater, pair of gloves, or cozy hat! The superwash merino makes it great for baby and kid's items, toys, homewares, and garments. Approx. 231 yd./211 m. Gauge: 5.5-6 stitches per 1" on US size 5-7 needles.
