There's just something about a lightly sparkled skein that makes a knitter's hands grabby. If you see it in the shop, you want to pick it up and immediately take a closer look. Especially in our shop, with over a dozen windows, the light reflects off the sparkling fibers, and just make you take a longer look.
Louise at Biscotte & Cie has sent us a beautiful batch of her Boreale Sock, a merino/nylon blend with just enough sparkle to catch your eye. Definitely great for socks, but also for hats, shawls, and other accessories.
I have a nice selection of varigated and semi-solid colors to choose from.
And if striping is more your speed, I have lots Felix striping sock yarn from Biscotte & Cie right now too!
