I have the newest collection from Opal, plus restocks of all colors of the Hundertwasser collection!
Opal has released their Sweet & Spicy 2 collection. The first collection sold quickly last year, and I'm so pleased that Opal has done another version of this collection. The colors are all plays on sweet things (like watermelon and cake balls) or spicy things (like pepper and apparently red cabbage...). Each one of these is totally knit worthy.
As you may have realized when our new website design came live last month, I'm able to offer a special price on 4-ply Opal collections. Each ball regularly retails at $18, but you'll find the price at Simply Socks Yarn Company to be just $15.
Opal is a sock yarn that you could easily gift to someone who appreciates hand knit socks, but may not neccessarily be up to hand washing or flat drying their gift on a regular basis. Opal, Trekking XXL, Berroco, Regia... all these I could knit for anyone in my family and not worry about them felting or shrinking or being ruined by less-than-perfect care. This is definitely the time of year to stock up on those types of sock yarns, since many of us are getting gift knits done for the holidays.
