PETRICHOR - the pleasant smell of earth after it rains - this is a beautiful plum purple wine tone. Use this to knit our Keziah top!
•Perfect for hand-knit socks, shawls, modern baby clothes and hats, accessories, mittens, stuffed animals and anything else you can think of!!
"RESILIENT" SUPERWASH MERINO WOOL SOCK YARN - our signature sock yarn! After years of using various sock yarns, I had the mill spin up this custom yarn for us, which embodies everything you'd want in an ideal sock yarn:
•4-ply : Results in round, defined, beautiful stitches. The more plies the better for items that will get lots of wear like socks. Your projects will last and last with very little pilling, strand breaking or wearing thin.
•BOUNCE FACTOR - this yarn is BOINGY! It has a ton of memory, or "resilience" (thus the name), which is ideal for socks since it stretches but bounces right back to its original length. Perfect!
•Fingering Weight: Perfect for hand-knit socks, but also virtually any other accessory you want to make, like hats, scarves and shawls, mittens, including baby and kid items. Wonderful for sweaters and other garments or even blankets! Sock yarn is so versatile and well-loved by many yarnies.
•Superwash Merino Wool = super soft, super fine wool. No itchiness here! Machine-washable! Hand-washing keeps your items looking the best the longest, but no worries if your socks accidentally get tossed into the washer and dryer. They'll be just fine and won't felt or ruin. Whew.

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
I love this yarn. Like all of her bases, this one is lovely and soft and nice, with the perfect amount of bounce and squish. And like all of her colors, this one is just gorgeous. I really like her tonals and semi-solids (not to the exclusion of others, of course), and this one is no exception. It's even more beautiful in person than it shows on the site, as usual. I'm supposed to be on a strict yarn diet, but I just could not resist this one, after looking at it for days. It is also a perfect pairing with the other yarn that I bought with it, with the hopes that they would complement each other well enough that I could use them together in a project. And, they almost look as if they were made as a set (even though the other one is on a different base). Oasis will always be my One True Love, but I haven't yet found a base from EFA that isn't just lovely.
I love EFA sock yarn. This one seemed to have a bit more of the "red" purple tones than I prefer, but lovely anyway. I sent this one to my sister for a birthday gift!
