Early this summer at one of the fibery tradeshows, Veronica showed off to me something they had been thinking of for quite some time- a reworked version of their Everlasting sock yarn. Everlasting was a gorgeously dyed skein of sock yarn that wore really well- it was eight thin plies of superwash merino, and that translated to a really sturdy sock yarn. For some, it was a bit too sturdy feeling- not quite as soft as one is expecting from Dream in Color. But the main complaint was that it was splittier than one might want, which means that you might miss a ply or two when not paying attention while knitting.
So Veronica and her team redesigned the yarn- it's much softer and nine strands that make up the fingering weight yarn are now tightly plied into a springy, round yarn. I think you'll love it. I know I do. I currently have more than two dozen colors of this new, gorgeous version of Everlasting Sock in stock right now.
Shown below in Eggplant, Morning Glory, Tidal and Victoria.
If you're looking for amazing colors that shift seamlessly from one to the next within the skein, this is for you.
If you're looking for gift socks that will hold up to machine washing (and occasional drying) and wear day after day, this is for you.
If you're looking for an awesome knit that shows off simple patterns as well as complicated, this is for you.
