Western Sky Knits | Secret Garden single & half skeins

No reviews

These are single and half skeins from the Secret Garden palette created by Western Sky Knits exclusively for Little Skein. The palette evokes the riotous colors of an English cottage garden. To aid your shopping:

Delphinium is the dark purple
Misselthwaite Manor is the grey
Old Rose is the light pink
Hollyhock is the dark pink.

The yarn base is Western Sky Knits' Magnolia Sock, which is a fingering weight yarn that leans ever so slightly toward the sportweight end of the spectrum. With cashmere blended with soft merino wool, it's incomparably soft and a little bit slinky. The yarn is a gently spun 4-ply, which asks knitters to be careful when cabling, so as not to split the strands. The gentle twist means that your finished shawl or garment will be extra soft to the touch.

Magnolia Sock comes in skeins of:

- 115 grams (4 ounces)
- 378 yards per skein
- 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon

 

Because several of the colors are very saturated, you should expect a bit of color release when blocking, particularly if you use a wool wash (which, for some reason, tends to encourage color release in the water).
