Doubletree Self-Striping Sport (4) - 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon - Traveler Base


Inspiration comes from the oddest places sometimes. In this case, I was inspired by a most becoming segment of wallpaper in a hotel room I recently stayed in. This four stripe colorway features two wide stripes in brown and taupe and two narrow stripes in turquoise blue and lime green. The second photo shows a representation of how this colorway will 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.

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.
