NB: We only stock a limited number of our "originals" yarn sets, which means that the yarn will most likely be dyed especially for you. In this case your order will be ready for shipment within 3-4 weeks. If you need it urgently, please send us a note before ordering to check ready-to-ship availability.
This yarn set provides enough yarn for the AMBIENT SOCKS by Helen Stewart, containing one skein of Walk Tough Sock in „Cosmic Chaos“ and one skein of Walk Tough Sock Mini in „Propolis“, the original colour used by the designer.
Helen Stewart on her design: "The Ambient Socks offer an absorbing knit, with eyelet lace on the front of each sock, continuing down the foot, and a textured pattern on the back. The stitch patterns have been chosen to make the most of even highly variegated yarns, spreading and diffusing the different colours. An eye of partridge heel flap and gusset and a round toe in contrast colour finish things off: I love to use up scrap sock yarn or minis this way. There are three sizes to choose from, and as always the pattern is easy to adapt if you prefer a different heel or toe so you can always find a great fit."

CareCold hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry. We recommend pre-washing intense colors before combining with lighter shades to remove excess color pigments.
Dyes are applied merely by hand so there is a natural variation within hanks of the same dye lot. To maintain an even appearance in larger projects I would suggest to alternate skeins while knitting.
I take great care photographing my items, but please take into account that colours might vary slightly due to different monitors.
