"The coldest winter was a summer spent in San Francisco." ~ Mark Twain

Our San Francisco summers are often accompanied by grey skies and cooler temperatures. Where I live (out near the beach) the dunes and front gardens are peppered with ice plants with bright pink flowers - a welcome pop of color!

Join in the summer fun with the limited addition Summer Sock Set Collection! These Sock Sets are offered in two sizes:

  • Sweet Summer Sock Sets include one 50g skein and one 20g mini skein - just the perfect amount and combo to knit a pair of socks with contrasting heels and toes!
  • Super Summer Sock Sets include one 100g skein and one 20g mini skein - great for larger/longer socks with a pop of contrasting color for heels and toes!

Both sizes would also be great additions to a shawl or sweater!

Two new Summer Sock Set colorway combos from the Collection will be introduced during the shop update each week over a few weeks - beginning Saturday, July 10th. Please note that this collection will be offered for a limited time only and will have a small number of sets dyed in each colorway combo.

Every skein is dyed with professional acid dyes and with a lot of love and care!  I use a variety of techniques to get unique colorways.  One of the beauties of hand-dyed yarn is that each skein will be slightly unique - some may have more speckles, some  a little more concentration of a color.  While I do use specially crafted formulas to keep colorways as consistent as possible, no two skeins will be exactly the same.  I recommend that you alternate skeins every couple of rows when using more than one skein of the same colorway.  If you order multiple skeins, I will do my best to match them as best I can.

Please note that while I always try my best capture the colors correctly when photographing, with different monitors colors can vary greatly in appearance. I am the sole owner and dyer at Speckled Finch Studios and only dye in small batches. 

Recommended care:  hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.

**Regarding Gauge: Please note that gauge varies depending on the knitter, needle size and project.  Please make sure to do a gauge swatch when knitting a pattern.  Additional gauge and suggested needle info can be found at the Craft Yarn Council here.
