It is with complete pleasure that we announce the arrival of a “scrumptious” new sock yarn this week. In between globe-trotting, teaching, and consulting, our Samantha has found the time to develop her very own yarn line – Scrumptious Purl – which made its debut in store just yesterday. Stripe Me Up, an 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon blend, is available in a collection of stunning colourways which are precision dyed to yield 6 rows per stripe on an average 64 stitch sock (some variation by knitter gauge is to be expected). Each 400 yd (365 m) ball takes approximately 30 – 40 minutes to create from wrapping on a board through kettle dying and, finally, hand-winding into a beautiful work of art. Although we love every single colour in the Scrumptious Purl range, we are especially excited about the exclusive custom colourway dyed just for us, aptly named – EspaceTricot. 🙂 Lisa has already knit a pair of socks with it (see below) and we’ll have the pattern available for download early next week in both English and French. In the meantime, come in and stock up!
