I fell in love with this yarn base and had to bring it to you. Had to.
Hanami, or "flower viewing," is a springtime tradition in the Seattle area. It's a tradition brought with Japanese immigrants to our area, and one Seattleites look forward to each year. In my area, the flowers viewed are most likely to be cherry--- especially the blossoms on the trees that line the Quad on the University of Washington's campus (my alma matter - Go Huskies!). Naturally, Hanami the event needed a special yarn to commemorate it.
75% British BFL/ 25% nylon superwash wool.
464 yd/ 100g skein. 4 ply
Really lovely fabric for socks on US sizes 0 - 2. Enough for big feet, little feet and feet in between. Or shawls, or whatever you want. This yarn rounds out with blocking.
Machine washable, although I recommend handwashing (takes 3 minutes) in cool water. This will keep your Sok colors at their brightest for much, much longer. Additives in most laundry detergents will fade hand dyed colors over time.
