Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn - Edgewater Reviews

Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn - Edgewater
Edgewater shown $25.00

Striking hand-dyed colorways, unbelievable softness, superb stitch definition and easy-to-care-for machine washability. Shepherd Sock is truly the ultimate sock yarn! This versatile superwash wool has just a touch of nylon for added durability and can be used for everything from socks and shawls to lacy tops and lightweight cardigans. Each 100g hank is enough to make one pair of adult size socks with a generous 430-435 yards. No matter your tastes and preferences in colors, with over 175 solid and variegated hues to choose from (not to mention Limited Edition colors) there really is a color for everyone!

The color Go, Sandy, Go was created in honor of a very special JBW family/staff member, Sandy! In the fall of 2014, Sandy underwent chemo to address her recurrent cancer, and Lorna's was generous enough to dye up the gorgeous shade of peachy pink, the color endometrial cancer support, to help us raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Both Jimmy Beans Wool and Lorna's Laces are donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this color in any Lorna's Laces yarn to Cast of Chemo!, a fiber-arts based charity that helps to "fund research that will end the need for chemotherapy in breast cancer treatment and, ultimately, cure potentially all cancers."

Great fingering weight for shawls 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I selected this yarn in Huron and Sage to knit the Downton Abbey KAL Mystery Shawl in January/February 2015. The yarn is soft and knits easily without splitting, and I found only one felted join in two 100 Gm. skeins of yarn. Because a shawl is not knit to fit a specific size, the fact that this is a superwash merino and thus can be expected to stretch when washed and blocked is not a deterrent for me. I liked the yarn and the shawl design so much from the start that I ordered two more skeins in colorways Christmas at Downton and Douglas Fir to knit another shawl. As always, the superb assistance by JBW customer service angels helped me with color decisions.
