The newest yarn base for Unwind Yarn Company was voted into the lineup by an informal Instagram poll- apparently sportweight socks and easy-care garments are on everyone’s knit list right now! This absolutely delightful three-ply sportweight yarn is a luscious blend of superwash merino and nylon, and wears beautifully in any application. The very round structure showcases stitch patterns beautifully, while the nylon content will help your work of art to last! It comes in a very generous put-up as well, so you have lots of yardage to work with.
This colorway is a part of my Halloween 2015 colorway collection based on the movie Practical Magic. It is a hybrid of kettle and space dyeing and features shades of lime green, strawberry pink, navy, black, charcoal gray, and white. It will spiral pool with most sock patterns but would have a beautiful mottled effect in lace or patterns with a larger number of stitches cast on; please be sure to knit a swatch before beginning your project to be sure you like the effect with your chosen pattern. There is only one skein available in this dyelot.
Want to see this colorway on another base? Place a custom order and I'll be happy to dye it on any base you want! But be aware that Halloween colorways are only available for special order from August to October. :)

After dyeing, I always rinse my items once in cool water; be aware that some dye leakage may still happen when the item is washed for the first time, but is not indicative of color fading.
Any purchase of 2 or more mailable items from my shop will receive an organic lavender sachet in their package. If you would prefer not to receive a sachet for allergy or other reasons, please leave me a note.
Please keep in mind that I try my best to photograph my items carefully, and that the colors are correct on my monitor.... however, there might be a slight variation between my monitor and yours.
