Beautiiful new yarn

Here is a look at the new yarn I got last night. It was still a bit damp from being dyed so I have it hanging over the ironing board drying. The colours are amazing. This is the beginning of a new sock yarn from Fun Knits. It is dyed for us by Judy Maclean of Sweatermaker yarns. She is amazing at combining colours

This new sock yarn is called Floral Spectrum Socks - 75% superwash wool, 25% Nylon - 420 m /100gr skein. It costs $21.50 Canadian and $18.95 US.

This is the softest sock yarn I have knit with. It feels a lot like Lorna's Laces. I am really happy with this yarn. Today I am getting it labelled and priced. Tomorrow it will be available to buy at the Web Store.

The colours I have are

Mulberry Bush - greens /purples/blues

Sweet Pea - pinks/ white/ blues/ green/purples

Red Rose - reds and pinks

and Calendula - yellows / golds/ brown/ olive

More flowery colours will be added within the next few months. If you have any flowers you love and can suggest colours let me know and we will work on getting them for you. This is so much fun.!!!

OH my Gosh. Beautiful. Can't wait to see it in person...I'm hoping for some solids or semi-solids too!
