November Sock Review: Gyspy Stardust

Rocking your socks off!!

Put on your favorite Stevie Nicks album and grab your needles, cause Gypsy Stardust, our yarn dyer for this month, is rocking your way with an exclusive blend just for us- Gypsy Yarnbox. It's a 75% Superwash Merino, 15% Nylon, and 10% Tencel fingering weight yarn that will have you singing "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around". With 100 grams and 433 yards per skein you'll be saying "Don't Stop" knitting, and I'm "Never Going Back Again" to basic yarns.

This month we asked the talented Nathalia Vasilieva to design the sock for this box. Her use of texture in her Belle Du Jour pattern is balanced well with the colors of the yarn. We love the floats that create the diamond check pattern. 

Gypsy Stardust has shared with us a little about their dying process. This is really fun for us to see how yarn is dyed, how colors are chosen, and the process to pull a line together.

Join us on Ravelry where our members are working these and other patterns.
