Longest Night Self-Striping Worsted (6) - 100% SW Merino - Cozy Base


Each December, the Winter Solstice comes to the northern hemisphere, bringing with it the beginning of winter and the longest night of the year. It's a favorite time of mine, celebrating the quiet, introspective nature of the winter season. This colorway was my attempt to capture the beauty that is that longest night of the year. This colorway was originally dyed for the December 2014 installment of the Six Stripes Sock Club.

The second picture below is a representation of how the original striping pattern for this colorway would stripe when knit into an adult-sized mitten-type garment.

It was dyed on our Cozy base, a 100% superwash Merino, approximately 220 yards, 5 stitches per inch on US 7 needles.

Note: Due to the process required for producing this striping pattern, with multiple colors being dyed in close proximity to one another, occasional color bleeds between neighboring colors may be present in this skein. This is an unavoidable element in this colorway and is 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.
