Tangerine dream, hand-dyed by me
Completed in 2011, the year I knit a "sock wardrobe" for my sister

I purchased this sock yarn from John Hewitt of Yarn Undyed, at the fabled Woolfest up in the Scottish Lake District. Woolfest is such big fun!

The fiber content is 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% nylon for strength.

I really liked knitting with this yarn. I will buy it again. I knit the socks in the yarn's natural white state. I then dropped the completed socks in the dye bath with my favorite Jacquard brand acid dyes.
