Awakening Self-Striping Sport (5) - 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon - Traveler Base


Inspired by The Force Awakens, we offer our new five-stripe colorway, Awakening. Wee stripes double back on themselves in the striping pattern.

Blue represents Rei's lightsaber blade
Camel brown represents the sand
Burnt orange is for BB8
Silver is for the Millennium Falcon
Dark brown is for the leather that is found accompanying Rei and Finn's garments

The second picture below is a representation of how this colorway may stripe when knit into a sock sized garment.

It was dyed on our Traveler base, 80% SW Merino, 20% Nylon, 328 yards, sport weight, 5.5-6.5 stitches per inch on US 3-5 needles.

One skein of Traveler should provide enough yardage to make a pair of socks to fit a woman's size 8 foot with a 5-6" cuff. As always, check yarn requirements for the specific pattern you are making. This skein will be perfect for some toasty socks that knit up quickly or your other favorite sport weight projects.

Note: Due to the process required to produce this striping pattern, with multiple colors dyed in close proximity, occasional color bleeds between neighboring colors may be present. This is a naturally occurring element of this colorway and not a defect.

Recommended care: Though this is a superwash wool and can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air dry flat.

All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color strengths can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.

We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
