Vintage Books Self-Striping Sock (4) - 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon - Bounce Base


Vintage Books was the striping colorway featured in our August 2015 Minis of the Month. It is a four-stripe colorway showcasing the antique blue, green and gold that were common colors for the cloth covers of old books, along with a faded gray, representative of the color of old book type. The second picture below is a representation of the colorway's striping pattern.

It is dyed up on our Bounce base, an 80% superwash Merino, 20% nylon yarn, 400 yards, fingering weight., 6.5 - 8 stitches per inch on US 0-2.

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.
