Superwash Merino sock yarn, DK weight, 400 yards - LEONATO
This yarn is part of our "Shakespeare" series of handpainted sock yarns, each named for a character in a Shakespeare play. This is a pair of skeins that have been dyed together. Each pair is a one-of-a-kind, never-to-be-repeated dyeing.
Leonato is the father of Hero in Much Ado About Nothing.
This yarn is shades of burgundy, lavender and blue.
You will receive two skeins of 200 yards each, totaling 400 yards of 4-ply tightly spun DK weight 100% Superwash Merino sock yarn. The wool, grown in South America, is low-micron, next-to-the-skin soft and knits into a very soft, dense fabric that is machine washable. I have dyed this in very short color increments in two-yard repeats to minimize any deep and wide pools (see sample picture). A size 6 needle is recommended. This yarn is manufactured by Cherry Tree Hill Yarn, and hand painted here at Edgewood Garden Studios.
