This is a new base to me and I love it! These are the first two skeins I have officially dyed on this base and offered in my shop so it only made sense to dye them Unicorn colours for Be a Freaking Unicorn!
So what makes this base so special? It is 4-ply instead of my typical 3-ply Basic Sock and has a bit more yardage at 450 yds….18 wpi 75% SW merino 25% nylon….more tightly plied ….so will offer more strength for items that take a lot of wear, like socks!

NOTES RE HAND-DYED YARNS:
Be aware that colors may appear differently on different computer monitors, but every effort has been made to portray them as accurately as possible.
All of my yarns are hand dyed and, as much as I attempt to match, every batch is one-of-a-kind. Be sure to order what you need as matching future batches are not guaranteed.
When using hand-dyed yarns in a project that requires more than one skein, it is strongly recommended to alternate skeins every other row of knitting to even out any differences.
Lastly, as with any hand dyed yarn, please expect minor imperfections and some variation from skein to skein (even within the same batch), as each skein is individually hand painted.
If you live within the Hamilton (GTA) or you will be passing through and want to arrange a pickup, choose the “local pickup” option and message me to arrange a time and place.
