Dream in Color has released their new sock yarn, Knitosophy (nit-AW-sofee). Dyed on their Smooshy base yarn, Knitosophy is bright and flashy, and is different from Smooshy which has somewhat muted tones with more subtle color changes. In fact, they named this unique dyeing technique "flash dyeing" to reflect the bright, run way the colors look in the skein. You may have seen some of the first skeins of this dyeing method on the special edition colors in our store. Each skein is completely unique and the color play randomly in the skein with no hint of exactly how the colors will knit up. Each color has a unique tag with a painting and an inspiration quote- the art and philosophy of Knitosophy.
Below are photos and information about these new colors, directly from Dream in Color. I don't know how accurate the pictures are for each color, as none of the yarn has been shipped yet (edited to add that the yarn has now arrived and is available here). And if the skeins are anything like our special edition colors, it's likely that color will vary (in how light and dark it is) quite a bit for each skein in the same colorway. I'll let you know as soon as we get our shipment in the store and up on the website, but I really don't have a timeline right now. I'm really looking forward to this new line!
