Description

Like a cutting garden in full bloom, hand-dyed Posy (and its partner, Pocket Posy) are seedlings for the imagination! One-hundred-gram fingering weight Posy is big sibling to Pocket Posy, which is the same yarn in a more diminutive 25-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. Great for sock knitting, Posy is also a wonderful weight for year-round sweaters, baby gear, hats, mittens, and, doubled, squishy, cozy, amazing blankets. The entire bouquet of eighteen 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.
