Supercalifragilistic sock yarn | Highland Handmades


    Mystery skeins are now sold out!

    "I never explain anything." -Mary Poppins.

    Enjoy a true surprise with your kit with a skein of mystery sock yarn, hand-dyed for you by Highland Handmades on one of my absolute favorite sock bases: Speckled Alder.

    Your skein will be a mystery color, but I can give you these hints: It will be gently variegated, with similar color values, so your yarn will knit up as a gently speckled and similarly colored tone. Not tonal, but nothing wild and dramatic. No pooling or flashing. Just subtle surprises and individual stitches of wonderful color that coordinate with Mary's palette.

    Speckled Alder is a beautifully wooly (yet still superwash) sock yarn, perfect for fall socks. It's made in the US from 90 percent superwash Targhee and 10 percent nylon. It has a lovely sproingy twist and looks ever so slightly tweedy!

  • I am delighted to introduce you to the artists involved with the Supercalifragilistic kit and collection:

    Karalee Harding is a talented designer of knitwear accessories, known for her creative use of texture and simple lace, with clear and modular patterns. She's also my colleague at Little Skein, and when she first mentioned the idea for an umbrella-inspired Mary Poppins shawl, I was instantly enchanted with the concept. I'm so lucky to have her as part of the Little Skein team, and encourage you to check out her beautiful design portfolio.

    Heather Kinne of Highland Handmades is a genius with color and fiber. She created a perfectly inspired mix-and-match set of four colorways for the kit, which bring to life Mary's seemingly incongruous practicality and imagination. She's used one of her more select bases, Serviceberry Sock, which is lusciously soft and has generous yardage. Her yarns are hand-dyed in the fresh Maine countryside.

    Janelle Coury is a designer and artist who created the original illustrations for the project bag fabric, greeting card, and kit collateral material. Janelle is a wonderfully talented illustrator, with a gift for surface design and her interpretation of Mary's world is oh-so-inspiring!

    and me, Anne of Little Skein in the Big Wool. I'm the curator of the Supercalifragilistic kit: I bring everything together and share ideas with each of the artists so the kit becomes a cohesive whole. I create the stitch markers, sew the project bags (with our team) and hand-pack each order.

    We hope you love our creations!
