Like a cutting garden in full bloom, hand-dyed Pocket Posy (and its partner, Posy) are seedlings for the imagination! Twenty-five-gram fingering weight Pocket Posy is little sibling to Posy, which is the same yarn in a bigger 100-gram skein. Both are a super soft blend of 75% superwash merino, 15% cashmere, and 10% nylon. They are machine washable, durable for socks and anything else hard working, and wonderfully soft for the baby in all of us. Pocket Posy is the perfect little skein for pops of color (toes, heels, cuffs), color work (stripes, Fair Isle, intarsia), pom poms, tassels, and all those other little jobs that require a thoughtful touch! The entire bouquet of eighteen Pocket Posy colors is beautifully hand dyed in Peru, each skein a subtle play of shades and all inspired by the details and revelations of a flower bed!
If you’re using hand dyed yarn, like our Posy and Pocket Posy, you may want to re-fix the dye before you begin in order to prevent the colors from bleeding when you wash the finished piece. For tips on how, visit our Re-Fixing Dye Tutorial.
