Socky-Talky Bubblegum Blues
Socky-Talky Bubblegum Blues
Price is per skein, approximately 115g (4.06 oz), 389m (426yd). 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon.

NEW! Dyeguy is trying out some new techniques and here's one of the first out of the kettle. Deep denim blue and bubblegum pink collide in places, giving tinges of plum and violet. There is a basic colour change about every 12 inches with random overlays and splashes for a sort-of-repeats-but-not-quite effect.

Price is per skein, approximately 115g (4.06 oz), 389m (426yd). 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon.

Haven't we all wanted to knit bumblebee socks?? Glowing yellow is combined with black - well, really a deep midnight green but it looks black from 5 feet away. Not self-striping like a wasp, this will more likely pool like the patterning on a fuzzy bumblebee.

Socky-Talky Natural – 1-Lb Value Pack
Socky-Talky Natural – 1-Lb Value Pack
80% Superwash Merino wool / 20% Nylon. Fingering weight, 3-ply. Approximately 115g (4.06 oz), 389m (426yd). Gauge: 2.25-3.25mm needles. 6 to 8 stitches = 1 inch, or as pattern requires. Laundering: Machine wash cool, tumble dry on low, hang or dry flat. The same base yarn we use for our Socky-talky™ line. The spin is smooth and soft, yet with the nylon component it offers the durability needed for socks and active wear. Truly a workhorse fingering weight yarn! Because of the superwash wool this is not suitable for felting. This yarn takes dye beautifully, whether you are using acid dyes, food colouring, Kool-aid or even natural dyes. Just bear in mind that Superwash yarn strikes with acid dyes so quickly that it can be very tricky to get a decent solid tone. Use that to your advantage like we do, to get interesting semi-solids or go crazy with hand painting. We highly recommend this yarn to first-time dyers! Dyed colourways of Socky-Talky™ are listed under Yarns > Dyeguy PRODUCT of CANADA Price for 4 skeins, approximately 115g each. A 15% savings on our regular price.
