Hand dyed fingering (sock) weight yarn on my Squishy Sock base in a deep burgundy with undertones of golden yellow.

There is a personal story behind the creation of this colourway.

I spent a lot of my childhood with my grandparents and have many fond memories of the times we spent together. They are both gone now. Since they are still so close to me, I like to go visit them from time to time at their plot in the cemetery. During one of my most recent visits, I went to visit my grandpa for his birthday. I had every intention of leaving a flower for him. When I got there, the water was frozen. It was winter at the time. I felt so silly/stupid and embarrassed and apologized that I couldn’t leave the flower with them.

Ever since I brought it home I knew that I wanted to turn it into a colourway as a way of preserving this memory. I like to think that they would be very happy with this colour.

I still have the flower.

The listed price is for one skein of yarn. Multiples may be available. Check the Quantity dropdown menu to see what's available.

Squishy Sock:

80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, approximately 420 yards, 3-ply, 115 grams, fingering (sock) weight

Although superwash wool is machine washable, for best results I recommend a gentle hand wash in cool water - do not wring out - and lay flat to dry.

Although I do my best to ensure the photos represent the item accurately, the colour may vary slightly based on individual computer screen settings.
