Wandering Wool Sock Yarn Giveaway!






I think this is the first time I've featured Wandering Wool's "High Peaks" sock yarn. It's so very scrummy people!  80/10/10 Superwash merino/cashmere/nylon and it's quite floofy and more on the DK side than fingering. 

If it's Wandering Wool, you know Joelle has taken the utmost care in dyeing a saturated, and consistent yarn. This particular colorway is aptly named "Mango" as it is a luscious yellow with sections of sweet coral reds and tart dark limes.

If you'd like to enter this giveaway, please visit Wandering Wool today, find something that you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those extra twitter, facebook, pinterest, plurk, blog updates about this as extra entries!

I am on a major GREEN kick. My 5 year old requested a sweater and the shop's Superwash Merino Wool Worsted Weight in Tundra Colorway would be PERFECT.

Amber Zimbelman said...

Love the Emerald Isle colorway! My little girl adores green, and it's getting hard (with current fashion trends) to find greens that aren't olive drab.

Katja said...

This looks so delicious! I love all of Wandering Wool's DK yarns, especially the Denim and the Fiddlehead Green colorways.

Kendal said...

Oh my goodness there are a lot of lovable colorways in there! My favorites are the "Aurora Borealis" Phat Fiber yarn, the "Strawberries and Cream" colorway, and for some reason, though I usually like brighter colors, "Gray Matter."

I really wouldn't mind winning this yarn :)

The colors of the Merino Sock Yarn - Phat Fiber - Hand Dyed Superwash Merino 2-ply Fingering Weight Yarn in Aurora Borealis Colorway are simply stunning.

I don't think I'd look good in this color, but I love it nonetheless! Merino Sock Yarn - Hand Dyed Superwash Merino 2-ply Fingering Weight in Toffee Colorway is just plain yummy. :)

And I've pinned it.

I love anything and everything in Emerald Isle, Aurora Borealis, and Desert Sky colorways. Obviously, I'm one of those who look at color first, buy the yarn, THEN think of what I'll make with it :-)

Jessica Jo said...

I am a sucker for anything called "cherry blossom" anything. Theirs is no exception!
Also, I hate the term "scrummy" because it sounds like you care calling it "crummy."
