August Sock Review: Phoenix Fiber Works- Totally Tweed!

Who is in the mood for pie? This month's sock yarn is presented to you from Phoenix Fiber Co hailing from Youngstown of Ohio. Their yarn "Tweedy Pie" is a freckled fiber and a tasty tweed! It is more than just dessert, even though these colors are good enough to eat!

"Tweedy Pie" is a 2-ply Sock Weight made of 85% SW Merino and 15% NEP, a dye resistant nylon fiber that adds a tweed fleck to this yarn. Dyer, April Wolf, is naturally gifted when it comes to choosing colors. Her eye is finely tuned to produce colors and fibers that are so delicious we really do want to bake them into a pie and eat them.

Weighing in at 100g and 438 yards per skein you will have more than dessert to look forward to.

Mermaid Tales - Bright / Green Blue Brown
Sunken Ship - Bright / Teal Brown
