Old-Fashioned Horehound Sock Set

Sorry, this item has sold.

Old-Fashioned Horehound Sock set is featured in issue 12 of Nomadic Knits Magazine. This sock set is available on my Simple Syrup base:

1, 100 gram skein of Simple Syrup fingering (plus 2, 20 g minis)
-80% super wash merino wool
-20% nylon
-560 yards

The main colorway is Old-Fashioned Horehound. The two minis are Cream Soda and Mermaid Lemonade.

What makes this sock yarn? The inclusion of nylon helps to make a more robust yarn to keep hand knit socks from wearing through as easily.

This yarn is hand-dyed and requires a little extra care. It should be hand washed by soaking your item in tepid water with a soap for wool. Gently squeeze the water from your handmade item, never wringing it, and place in a towel and roll up to remove the excess. Lay flat to dry.

Some colors may bleed, depending upon the ph balance of your water. To be cautious, you could add a color catcher sheet to your wash water.
