Turtlepurl’s “Striped Turtle Toes” hand-dyed, self-striping sock yarn is a beautiful 4 ply, 75% superwash merino, 25% nylon sock yarn. It is truly a joy to knit with and is soft, strong and durable.
We are "dyeing for you to match"! We've made it easy! Turtlepurl's yarn has been dyed to be self-striping. Both strands were dyed together. This will create matching socks that can be easily knit 2 at a time. For matching socks, ensure you start from the same end of each ball. Then watch the magic happen!
There is plenty of yarn for a large pair of socks, or a small scarf.DETAILS:

To ensure your satisfaction with your purchase, please contact me if you have any questions about this product prior to ordering. While I make efforts to photograph the yarn in a natural light, computer monitors can show colours differently so please be aware the hues in the actual yarn may vary from what you see on screen.
Turtlepurl's yarn comes to you in 2 skeins. These skeins will need to be "ball wound" or "caked" before knitting. You will need a yarn swift or a helping hand for this process.
