I was contacted by my main yarn supplier (Atelier Zitron), because they know that I like dyeing sock yarns and that you, my customers, also love to get sock yarns from me. 😉 They created this fun experiment limited edition yarn base: before plying the 4-ply-yarn (of what is my usual Oak Sock base), they dyed two of the four strands in a deep red color which results in very fun colorways when handdyed. This is a very limited edition base (usually this base is available with the two strands dyed black, but I never had it in stock) – with only about 200 skeins total that were ever made (and I got 40! ;-D). And because it is a limited edition, I had a lot of fun in the dye pots and dyed only non-repeatable colorways on it. So these are 10 true OOAK (one of a kind) colorways – I dyed in increments of 2 to 6 skeins per colorway. The base and the colorways will never be repeated again.
OAK SOCK: THE sturdy and long-wearing sock yarn base – really perfect for socks, but I’ve also made mittens and hats out of it, and customers used it for shawls and garments as well (although I prefer other bases for those)!
Aproximately 100 grams and 420 meters of 4-ply superwash sock yarn // 75% virgin wool, 25% polyamid //24.5 micron
Each and every skein is a truly handmade product – from the handdyed skein to the yarnband and label design. We take great care in taking/editing the pictures of your products so they look as close to reality as possible – but please note that these are “catalogue pictures”, we don’t take pictures of each and every single skein of yarn but try to do our best to represent the colorway and it’s varieties in the photos we use (the representation obviously also depends on your screen/computer).
I dye in increments of 2-4 skeins per pot, so please make sure to attach a note with your order if you want to use your yarn for projects that use more than 1 skein per colorway, so I can make sure that those skeins come from the same dye batch. Depending on your gauge, pooling might still be possible, although I try my best to prevent that from happening with my dyeing techniques. I highly recommend alternating your skeins for mulitple skein-projects!
For best results and long wear I recommend handwashing your knitted items – in cold to max. lukewarm water with wool wash. Lay flat to dry.
I am using professional acid dyes and citric acid to dye my yarns (vinegar for stellina yarn bases), but I make sure to soak and wash them with ecological wool wash (Ecover) after the dyes have set and rinse them until the water runs clear before drying. But because of the nature of some dyes (especially reds/ blacks/ turquoise/ blues), “bleeding” of excess dyes is still a possibility.
