Sock - Arco Iris 866


Add to Cart

A soft, smoothly-plied, lightweight sock yarn in a range of semi-solid and watercolor multi colorways. Spun from luxurious merino and treated to make it machine washable for easy care. Don’t be fooled by the name - while it’s certainly a treat for the feet, this delightful yarn is also a particular favorite for shawls and scarves!

Great for: Lace, shawls, scarves, garments, baby and child items, gloves, and of course socks!

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Some colors may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.  

A note about color variation:  Due to the hand dying process, each skein is unique.  You will receive a skein from this colorway, but not the exact skein pictured.  The proportions and intensities of colors may vary.  If you are ordering multiple skeins of the same color, we will hand pick skeins that match each other as best as possible.  We recommend buying your entire yardage requirement for your project in the same transaction for color continuity.
